The Jefferson sports teams are known as the Jefferson Rams. The merged school chose to retain PhilaU’s nickname and the athletic program follows the overall institution in using the branding of “Jefferson” when describing the university as a whole.
The university is known for its men’s basketball program, particularly coach Herb Magee, who became the most successful men’s basketball coach in NCAA history on February 23, 2010, and was inducted into the Class of 2011 of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Now in his 46th season, Magee is celebrating 54 years at Philadelphia University as a student, player and coach, highlighted by an NCAA Division II Basketball Championship in 1970. Magee was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters by President Stephen Spinelli Jr. at Philadelphia University’s 125th Commencement in 2009.
The university women’s basketball program is under Athletic Director and Women’s Basketball Coach Tom Shirley. Shirley, who has been the University’s director of athletics since 1992, has won 607 games, which places him sixth on the NCAA DII career wins list and 30th on the NCAA all-divisions career coaching wins list. On January 19, 2011, Shirley took his 600th win as the Rams defeated Chestnut Hill College 76–60.
