The 2012-2013 Hustlin’ Panthers will go down as one of the best Chaffey Basketball teams in school history. They won the toughest  Conference in the State (Foothill) outright and then made it to the CCCAAMB State Finals. Along the way the CHP led the State in scoring and beat #1 in the South Saddleback twice. The first time to win the Fullerton Tournament and the second in the elite eight where the CHP knocked off the Gauchos in convincing fashion on their home court to advance to the State Tournament in Sacramento. The CHP took on Undefeated (30-0) perennial powerhouse and #1 overall seed San Francisco City College. The Panthers used a suffocating full court press to bring down SFCC on a last second shot by Sango Niang. Fans stormed the court as the undefeated season of SFCC came to an end! The dream season ended for the CHP in the State Finals to Mt San Antonio College. The Chaffey roster had six dynamic Sophomores who went on to achieve full scholarships and all conference honors. Justin Long MVP Foothill Conference and first team all state (Hawaii Pacific University), Ryan Nitz 1st team Foothill Conference, All State Tournament Team (Cal State Monterey Bay), Kenny Morgan 1st Team Foothill Conference ( Adams State University), Sango Niang 1st team Foothill Conference ( Simon Fraser University), Justin Cole Hon Ment Foothill Conference ( Simon Fraser University) and D’On Hall (Lindsay Wilson University).

Under his direction, the Highlanders ranked in the Top 10 nationally and won 28 games in a row.

During his nine seasons at Upland, Klein led the team to three league titles and made the CIF playoffs every year starting in 1995.

He was also honored as the "Teacher of the Year" in 1996 from Upland High School.

Stacey Augmon (UNLV/Atlanta Hawks), Desmond Penigar (Utah State/Orlando Magic), Kirk Snyder (Nevada/Utah Jazz), and Jimmy Alapag (Cal State San Bernardino/Captain/MVP Philippine Basketball Association)are those who made it to the big time.

Coach Klein graduated from Lawrence High School on Long Island, New York, where he was an All-County athlete in football, basketball, and track. A graduate of SUNY at Cortland, Jeff earned his BS degree in Physical Education in 1985. In 1989, Jeff completed his MBA from the University of La Verne.
