"We're very excited about Ashlee being a part of our coaching staff," said coach Inman. "She's been here as a graduate assistant so she's familiar with the program which makes the transition for me coming in a lot smoother; also for the players as well. She brings a great tradition of winning as a player and we want her to bring that same attitude and devotion as a coach that as she brought as a player. We're very excited about what she brings here and we feel she's going to be an outstanding young coach."

McGee served as a graduate assistant for the Lady Tiger basketball program in 2011-12. As a graduate assistant she handled all aspects of the women's basketball program's administrative duties as well as assisted with team travel, film exchange, on campus recruiting and summer camps.

As an undergrad, McGee was a standout athlete for the Lady Govs basketball program for four years. She served as co-captain and helped lead APSU to consecutive conference tournament appearances.

Upon graduation, McGee went to Indiana University to pursue a master's degree in Applied Sports Science. While at Indiana she was a member of the student marketing association where she assisted with advertising and the promotion of IU athletics. She has also worked summer camps with Kansas University, Lipscomb University and IUPUI.
