Jeff Luster begins his sixth overall season and third season as an assistant coach with the TCU men's basketball program.
An original member of Neil Dougherty's TCU staff, Luster served three seasons as the team's director of basketball operations.
Luster, now 36, came to TCU from the University of Colorado, where he served as the director of basketball operations for head coach Ricardo Patton during the 2001-02 season.
"Jeff is very organized, energetic and is a tireless worker," Dougherty said. "He has had, and will continue to have, a positive impact on the TCU basketball program."
Before his stint at Colorado, Luster served as associate head coach at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan. In his lone season at Tabor, the program advanced to the Sweet 16 in the 2001 NAIA Tournament. While at Tabor, Luster's primary duties included on-floor coaching, recruiting, scouting and film exchange. He worked in a similar capacity at the United States Air Force Academy in the 1999-2000 season.
Prior to his one year in Colorado Springs, Luster spent the 1998-99 campaign serving as both an assistant basketball coach and head golf coach at Lamar Community College in Lamar, Colo.
Luster started his coaching career as a student assistant at Tabor College in the 1995-96 season. He then moved on to Central (Kan.) College and McPherson (Kan.) College, where he spent one season on each staff.
Luster graduated from Tabor College in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in physical education. As a player, he lettered in basketball and earned second team all-conference honors at guard.
Born June 2, 1971, in Colorado Springs, Colo., Luster graduated from Littleton High School in 1990. He and his wife, Shay, have three children: Taylor, Payton and Cooper.
