Jeff Cammon Will Return To The Beach As Women's Basketball Head Coach

Cammon spent five years at Long Beach State as an assistant coach.

Jeff Cammon was selected as the Long Beach State women's basketball head coach in May 2017. Cammon returns to the Beach after having served as an assistant coach from 2008-14. He brings a wealth of coaching experience after having spent time at Cal and Colorado before making his return to LBSU.

Cammon was part of former Long Beach State head coach Jody Wynn's first coaching staff at the Beach, spending five years with LBSU. During his first stint with the Beach, Cammon was instrumental in the team's turnaround.

In his first season with the team, Long Beach State finished over .500 in conference play for the first time in four years, and then two years later, reached the Big West Tournament finals.

"It's a dream come true to be able to come back to the Beach family," said Cammon. "I feel like I never left because my heart was still there in Long Beach. I'm both humbled and excited to come back and be able to build on the successful tradition and culture established by Jody Wynn, Derek and the rest of her staff."

In 2012-13, Long Beach State made its first postseason appearance in over ten years, earning a selection into the WNIT. In each of Cammon's five seasons at Long Beach State the Beach reached the Big West Tournament.

Cammon left LBSU to join the coaching staff at Cal, where he helped lead the Golden Bears to the 2014-15 Pac-12 Conference Championship game as well as to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. During his time in Berkeley, Cal posted a 40-27 record.

His most recent coaching stop was at Colorado, where he once again played a big part in a major turnaround. Doubling the team's win total from a season earlier, Colorado went 17-16 overall and started the season 10-0, including a win over a ranked Kentucky team. The Buffaloes also picked up a win No. 24 California on the road, the first away win over a ranked opponent for CU since 2007.

Prior to coaching at the Beach, Cammon spent two years as the head girls' varsity coach at Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills, Calif., where he also taught history.

He also coached on the men's side as an assistant at Kentucky Wesleyan, Chaffey CC and his alma mater, Alcorn State.

A three-year starter at point guard with the Braves, Cammon was the team captain for two years and led Alcorn State to three conference championships and an NCAA Tournament appearance.

Cammon graduated from Alcorn State in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in political science, and then completed a master's degree in physical education two years later in 2005.
