MacPherson, a former University of Arkansas All-American gymnast, will return to her SEC roots with the Tigers for the 2013-14 season as she will serve as Mizzou's beam coach while assisting on floor exercise. She comes to Mizzou after spending two years as the assistant coach at Western Michigan University.
At Western Michigan, MacPherson was responsible for beam and floor workouts, and also choreography and routine construction. She organized team travel during the competitive season and also assisted with budget management.
While competing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, MacPherson won 71 individual event titles on her way to eight All-America honors. She led Arkansas to a fifth-place national finish in 2009 and a No. 11 finish in 2010. MacPherson won the SEC Championship beam title, and she is also a two-time NCAA Regional Beam Champion and a NCAA Regional Floor Champion.
MacPherson holds the Arkansas school record with a 39.756 in the all-around, and she is tied for the school record on beam and floor with a 9.95 on each. She is a two-time First Team All-SEC and four-time Academic All-SEC honoree, and Magee was twice named the team's most outstanding gymnast.
Following her competitive career at Arkansas, MacPherson joined the Razorback gymnastics staff as a student-assistant in 2011, helping the team to a ninth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. She also went on to compete at the senior international elite level as she qualified for and competed in the 2011 and 2012 American Classic, the 2011 and 2012 Covergirl Classic and the 2011 Visa Championships.
"Casey Jo brings some very good experience from a coaching and former competitor standpoint," said head coach Shannon Welker. "She was instrumental in helping the Broncos earn a team conference title in the MAC last season, and the student-athletes she has coached have shown clear improvement in skill development and consistency. Her reputation and accomplishments as an elite and NCAA gymnast allow her an in-depth understanding of the mental toughness required to win."
The former Casey Jo Magee, MacPherson married Scott MacPherson in August 2014.
