Jeff Cammon enters his fourth season as an assistant coach at Long Beach State.
With Cammon on the 49er staff, LBSU has made three-straight Big West Tournament appearances.
Last year, Long Beach State advanced to the Big West Tournament championship game after defeating No. 2 seed Cal State Northridge and top-seeded Cal Poly. It was the first time in 11 years that the Black & Gold reached the finals. LBSU finished the campaign with a 14-18 overall record, marking the most wins by a 49er squad since the 2005-06 season.
In 2009-10, Cammon helped Long Beach State to a fourth-place finish in conference play and an appearance in the quarterfinals of the Big West Tournament. LBSU posted its first winning record in league play since 2005-06 with a 9-7 mark. The 49ers returned to the Big West Tournament in 2010-11 after finishing sixth in the conference.
Cammon re-entered the collegiate coaching ranks after spending two years as the head girls' varsity basketball coach at Bishop Alemany High School, where he also taught history. Prior to that, Cammon had served as an assistant men's basketball coach at Kentucky Wesleyan College, Chaffey Community College and Alcorn State University.
Cammon has also worked numerous camps in the Southern California area, including USC's Elite Camp and Pepperdine's Malibu Hoop Camp.
As a student-athlete, Cammon was a three-year starting point guard and two-time team captain at Alcorn State. He helped lead the Braves to three conference championships and an NCAA Tournament berth in 2001-02.
Cammon received both his bachelor's degree in political science (2003) and his master's in physical education (2005) from Alcorn State.
