Jodi Greve enters her fifth season on the Ladyjack coaching staff. She came to Nacogdoches from San Jose State where she spent three seasons as the Spartans recruiting coordinator.
Last season, Greve helped guide the Ladyjacks to their 16th Southland Conference regular season championship and to the championship game of the Women's Basketball Invitational. The Ladyjacks advanced to the title game of the Southland Conference Tournament as well.
Greve and the staff helped turn the Ladyjacks back into a contender in the Southland Conference quickly. In 2011-12, the Ladyjacks won 23 games, an increase in 11 wins from the 2010-11 season (12). That turnaround was tied for the sixth-biggest turnaround in the nation.
"Jodi has been a recruiting coordinator at the NCAA Division I level for several years," said Head Coach Brandon Schneider. "She has extensive ties throughout Texas and on the junior college scene nationally."
Along with her responsibilities as the recruiting coordinator, Greve worked with the Spartan perimeter players. She also assisted with individual and strength and conditioning workouts and monitored the academic progress of certain players.
Prior to her time in San Jose, California, Greve spent four seasons as an assistant at Tyler Junior College. The Lady Apaches recorded three 20-win seasons under Greve's guidance. In addition to assisting with the day-to-day operations of the basketball office, Greve also oversaw the team's academic progress.
Greve began her coaching career in 2001 as a graduate assistant at the University of Montevallo. During her two seasons with the Lady Falcons Greve worked with the perimeter players and assisted with the team's strength and conditioning workouts.
Greve graduated with her bachelor's degree from Arkansas in 2001. She graduated from Montevallo with a Master's of Education two years later.
