Jeff Jacobs enters his first season at the helm of the Larks women’s basketball program. Jacobs succeeds Dan Harrison, who stepped down following the 2015-16 season.
“We’re thrilled to bring Jeff to campus in this important role,” Hesston athletic director Rob Ramseyer said. “He has vast experience in coaching, mentoring, organization and leadership. I’m eager to see how he puts his talents to use for our women’s basketball program.”
Jacobs recorded a 303-117 coaching record at St. Bernard High School, Eureka, Calif., including over 200 wins with the girls basketball program. He holds a bachelor of arts in journalism from Humboldt State University, Arcata, California.
Following his time in coaching, Jacobs served as an executive in the Boys and Girls Club, first in California and later in the Wichita area. Jacobs is active as a deacon at Magdalene Catholic Church, Wichita.
“I’m honored and blessed to be called back to teaching and coaching the great game of basketball,” Jacobs said. “I look forward to getting to know the returning student athletes, filling the roster and guiding these terrific young women into being the best student, person and player they can be.”
