Career[edit]

Educated at Aquinas College, McPhee played for the Wembley Football Club in the Western Australian Amateur Football League (WAAFL), representing Western Australia at the national amateurs carnival, and also played for the East Perth Football Club in the WAFL reserves. He coached Wembley for three years, and also served as coach of the Subiaco colts and Claremont colts and reserves teams. He was appointed caretaker coach of the Claremont senior team in April 2009 after previous coach Roger Kerr was sacked.[2] After the club won seven out of its last fifteen games, McPhee was signed to a two-year contract as full-time coach.[3] In 2010, Claremont finished as minor premiers, but lost to Swan Districts by one point in the Grand Final.[4] The club again finished as minor premiers in the 2011 season, and defeated Subiaco by 56 points in the 2011 Grand Final.[5]

In October 2011, McPhee was appointed senior coach of the Sandringham Football Club for the 2012 season.[6] He will also serve in a role at the St Kilda Football Club's development academy in the Australian Football League (AFL).[7]
