Jeremy Case Returns to KU Hoops
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Former Kansas men’s basketball guard Jeremy Case has rejoined the KU staff as video coordinator, Jayhawks’ head coach Bill Self announced Friday.
Case comes to KU after four seasons as an assistant coach at Houston Baptist University. Case was a member of Kansas’ 2008 NCAA National Championship team and after graduation was on the KU staff while taking graduate courses at KU for the 2008-09 season. From there, Case was an assistant coach at Southeast Missouri State for three years before Houston Baptist.
“Jeremy was a player for us and later worked on our staff,” Self said. “He’s been on the road for the past seven seasons in the coaching profession and I was pleasantly surprised when he contacted me when this position opened. Hopefully this will be a stepping stone that will allow him elevate himself in coaching. He has always been a great ambassador for Kansas basketball.”
A native of McAlester, Oklahoma, Case played in 94 games while at Kansas and won four Big 12 regular season and three Big 12 postseason tournament championships. Including the 2008 title, Case was part of three NCAA Elite Eight teams while playing at KU. He earned his bachelor’s degree in communications in 2007 and was a two-time Academic All-Big 12 First Team honoree in 2006 and 2008.
“I feel like I am going home having played at Kansas,” Case said. “I want to thank Coach Self for the opportunity and look forward to learning from him and his staff. I also want to thank Ron Cottrell at Houston Baptist University for giving me the opportunity to be a part of his staff the past four seasons.”
