EHMS Winners Circle with Jeff Smith – OU Assoc. Head Coach Men’s Basketball

The EHMS Winners Circle is a before school program where students are given the opportunity to hear from guest speakers on goal setting and overcoming difficulties so they can reach their fullest potential.

Jeff Smith rejoined the Oakland men’s basketball program as the associate head coach in August 2019. Smith spent the previous seven seasons as an assistant coach at Central Michigan from 2012-19.

The Carson City, Mich. native is now in his second stint with Oakland, after serving five seasons on the sidelines for the Golden Grizzlies as an assistant coach (2002-05) then as the associate head coach (2005-07). He was largely responsible for Oakland’s highly-touted 2005 recruiting class and also helped the Golden Grizzlies to the Mid-Continent Conference Tournament championship plus a win in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in 2005.
