McGee said it is very hard to leave the Knights.
“The kids have just been great,” he said. “In 2017 we had an incredibly strong team; it was a lot of fun.”
McGee steered Bath County High School from 2004 to 2011 before taking over at James River. He led the Chargers to the state finals in 2009, the state semifinals in 2010 and the Group A Division 1 state crown in 2011.
While McGee is leaving the James River bench, he is keeping his other coaching job with the Roanoke United Volleyball club team. He has coached a 16-and-under team for that organization since 2012.
The Virginia Tech graduate is also keeping his new full-time job in instructional technology with Lexington City Schools.
