Has anyone used a convection oven for roasting before? If so how do you stir
the beans?

If you're talking about one of those portable round turbo convection  
ovens (a la Galloping Gourmet), most of us couple the top of one with  
the bottom of a Stir Crazy popcorn popper, modded to replace the  
plastic arms with metal ones and split-wired to provide separate  
circuits for stir and heat.

Stir crazy stirs under convection oven. Look up SCTO in google for plethora
of ideas.

No not the stir crazy. I was reading through threads on a different coffee
forum and came across one about using a convection oven. Then I remembered
that my microwave doubles as a convection
ovenso
I was wondering if there was a way to rig it for coffee roasting.

Oh, sorry. Yes, Tom has a tip sheet on that, I think. Try searching SM
website, google and Coffee Geek.

*Home Coffee Roasting* by Ken Davids has it. But the book is not very up to
date. More up-to-date info is available on line. Save your money for coffee.

Or you can rig up something like this using the stirring mechanism of  
a bread machine:
