Joey McGuire is in his first season on the Baylor coaching staff, where he works with tight ends
McGuire came to Baylor after a legendary run as head coach at Cedar Hill (Texas) High School. He led CHHS to three state championships in 14 seasons, including back-to-back titles in 2013 and 2014. He took Cedar Hill, a program that hadn't won a playoff game prior to his tenure, to 12 straight playoff appearances.
McGuire's teams amassed a 141-42 record, won state titles in 2006, 2013 and 2014, and made four title appearances (runner-up in 2012), won nine bi-district championships and seven district championships.
McGuire was named the 2013 Texas coach of the year by MaxPreps, Dallas Morning News SportsDayHS and Chevy Silverado after leading Cedar Hill to the Class 5A state title. He earned Class 5A coach of the year honors in 2013 by the TSWA, Dave Campbell's Texas Football, NFF Dallas Club and the Padilla Poll, and he repeated in the 2014 Padilla Poll. In 2006, he was honored by the Dallas Cowboys as the Coach of the Year.
A two-time district coach of the year honoree (2005 and 2006), he has coached in all but two Under Armour All-American games and was a head coach of the 2013 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. He served as head coach for the north in the 2014 THSCA All-Star Football game.
McGuire was promoted to head coach at Cedar Hill prior to the 2003 season and took over a program that had gone eight years without a winning season. From 1997 to 2002 he served as an assistant at CHHS.
Prior to CHHS, McGuire began his coaching career at his alma mater, Crowley (Texas) High School, where he spent two seasons (1995 and 1996) as an assistant. He earned his bachelor's degree in 1995 from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1995.
McGuire and his wife, Debbie, have two children, daughter Raegan and son Garret. Garret was a quarterback at Cedar Hill and will now be walk-on at Baylor.
