Michigan announced the hiring of Sean Magee as director of player personnel after serving in the same role at Navy for the past five seasons. Magee, a former Navy offensive lineman, led the planning process for recruiting, oversaw geographical assignments of assistant coaches and coordinated on-campus visits for the Midshipmen. He was also the program's liaison to admissions, academics and compliance within the academy and worked externally with NFL organizations. "Sean brings a strong recruiting history and an experienced personnel background to the University of Michigan," Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said in a news release. "We are excited to have his military experience, leadership skills and organizational talents help make our program great."
Mids attackman Ray to miss 'at least a couple weeks'
No. 17 Navy earned its first win of the season in Saturday's 11-5 victory at Delaware without starting attackman Jack Ray, and the team is bracing for another two weeks without the 6-foot-6, 261-pound junior. Coach Rick Sowell said that Ray is dealing with a foot injury that flared up in the first quarter of a 15-12 loss to then-No. 2 Maryland on Feb. 11. Ray played through the injury, but Sowell said the team has decided to keep him on the sideline for "at least a couple weeks." "Unfortunately, he's had to deal with foot injuries since he's been here," Sowell said. "We're just shutting him down a little bit and seeing how it responds, and we'll go from there."
