Jeff Klein

Jeff Klein
Coach - Men's Basketball

Jeff Klein is entering his 14th season as the head coach of the Chaffey College Men’s Basketball program and first in a dual role as coach / athletic director. The 2014-15 will be his 30th season overall. He was named the first Professional Expert to coach Men’s Basketball at a California Community College in 2001. This title enabled Klein to be a full time coach.

Over the last 13 years with Klein as the coach, the CHP avg 23 wins a season (303 – 112). With nine 20+ win seasons over the past 13 years. Playoffs twelve of the thirteen years. Klein is most proud of the 64CHP alumni who have received scholarships to four year universities.

The 2013-14 addition of the “CHP” had a tall order to follow. The year before the Chaffey Hustlin’ Panthers made it all the way to the
State final game. This squad did not want to get out done and also made it to the State Final 4. A feat that no other community college
in the State had done. In addition, the 2013-14 Panthers won the prestigious 16 team Riverside City College Tournament. The Panthers
were seeded 4th in the South and beat SD City 80-76, Pasadena City 79-71, Cerritos 68-66. The CHP then took on eventual State
Champion Santa Rosa and lost at the buzzer 49-47. The Panthers were an amazing 11-0 at the Chaffey College Sports Center and sent
8 sophomores on full scholarships to 4 year University’s. Soph Adom Jacko led the squad with being named 1st team All Foothill
Conference and 1st Team All State (Loyola Marymount). He was followed by All Conference selections Julian Nichols (Western
Oregon), John Gilliam (Eastern New Mexico), and Jeff Nibo (Valdosta State). Pape Seck (Simon Fraser), Roderick Evans-Taylor (Simon
Fraser), Tyler Shea (Western New Mexico) and Chris Fowler (Iowa Wesleyan) all contributed to our very successful season.

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).

Coach Klein, at age 23, became the youngest head coach in Southern California when he took the job at South Pasadena High School.
Before coming to Chaffey, Klein concluded a dramatic season at Upland High School where he coached the Highlanders to a CIF
Division 1-AAA title in 2001. 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. Klein
has earned top honors in coaching being named "Coach of the Year" by the Southern California Interscholastic Basketball Coaches
Association (SCIBCA), Fox Sports West 2 television, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, and the Los Angeles Times. He was also honored
as the "Teacher of the Year" in 1996 from Upland High School.

Coach Klein has been fortunate to coach many fine student athletes. Many have gone on to attend 4 year universities and a few have
reached the NBA. 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

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.

Over the years, Coach Klein has hosted a very successful 50-50 basketball camp in which he has influenced many young athletes in
the fundamentals of basketball. In his free time Klein enjoys spending time with his two children Danny (21) and Amanda (19), and
