McAfee, a 1951 graduate of Wichita State University, retired in May 2000 as the head men’s basketball coach and director of athletics at Morehouse College. He served 35 years as the basketball coach and 29 years as the AD.

During his 39 years of coaching, McAfee amassed 517 career wins, directing teams at Lane College, Mississippi Valley State University, Lincoln University (MO), Bishop and Morehouse.

During his time at Morehouse, McAfee led the basketball squad to 464 victories, six teams reached the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC), three claimed conference titles and advanced to NCAA play. In 1990, McAfee’s second SIAC Championship team reached the NCAA Division II Final Four.

During the 1990s, he was one of the SIAC’s most successful coaches. In that decade alone, his teams captured two SIAC championships. From 1988-98, McAfee’s teams won 197 games, a 64 percent winning percentage. He had four 20-win seasons and had 11 players receive all-SIAC recognition.

In 1999, he was third vice president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and in line to become president in 2001-02 but retired before reaching that office. Ninety-five percent of his players received their degrees.

An avid jazz buff, McAfee is enjoying retirement with his wife, three kids and three grandchildren.
