Charleston Southern head football coach Jamey Chadwell on Tuesday announced the hiring of Skylor Magee as the Bucs’ defensive line coach.

Magee was a member of Chadwell’s staff at Delta State in Cleveland, Miss., last season.

“I am excited to have Skylor Magee join our staff as defensive line coach,” Chadwell said. “He brings a wealth of experience to CSU and has coached several all-conference performers at different schools. He brings a wonderful passion for the position and is a great teacher of the game.”

Magee was also the defensive line coach and co-defensive coordinator on Chadwell’s staff at North Greenville. While at NGU, Magee helped engineer a defense that improved to one of the top units in Division II football, NGU’s defensive line had 20 sacks and 32 tackles for loss and in 2010 parlayed that success into a 9-3 season.

Magee began his coaching career as a graduate assistant under Steve Spurrier at South Carolina in 2005. While at USC, Magee assisted coaches Tyrone Nix and Brad Lawing with the defensive line. He also assisted coaches Ron Cooper and Fred Chatham on special teams.
