MacRae was an integral part of the 2016 Beach team that finished the year with a No. 4 national ranking after compiling a 25-8 overall record and making their eighth appearance in the NCAA Final Four and first since 2008.
With MacRae on the bench, the 49ers earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Championships, where they advanced to the semifinals after finishing with a 17-5 MPSF record. Under his tutelage, the Beach saw three players earn All-American honors in TJ DeFalco, Taylor Gregory, Josh Tuaniga and Andrew Sato. Additionally, DeFalco was also named the AVCA Newcomer of the Year. The quartet, along with Kyle Ensing, also collected All-MPSF accolades.
In 2015, MacRae helped the Beach exceed expectations as they went 15-13 and advanced to their fourth-consecutive MPSF Tournament after being picked to finish 10th in the 12-team MPSF Preseason Poll. Two 49ers garnered All-MPSF honorable mention recognition, while Taylor Gregory was also a Volleyball Magazine third-team All-American.
In MacRae's first year as an assistant, Long Beach State went 18-10 and made an appearance in the quarterfinals of the MPSF Tournament. Five 49ers earned All-MPSF honors, while Taylor Crabb was a first-team All-America selection.
In 2013, MacRae served as the director of operations for LBSU men's volleyball and helped engineer the team's run to the MPSF Tournament finals. It was the 49ers' best season in five years as they finished with a 24-8 overall record.
Outside of the Beach, MacRae was a coach for the USA High Performance Championships in 2014 and 2015. He also coaches at various USA High Performance camps.
From 2012-13, MacRae served as the technical coordinator for the USA Men's Pan American Team. He helped the U.S. claim a gold medal in the Dominican Republic (2012), while the squad placed fifth at the 2013 Pan Am Games in Mexico City. In addition, he is the club director of Long Beach Volleyball Club.
MacRae was born and raised in Long Beach as he prepped at Wilson High School and went on to graduate from Long Beach State with a bachelor's degree in finance in 2012.
