Jeff Jenkins begins his fourth season at Texas Tech as assistant men's golf coach after spending two previous years as an assistant at the University of Central Arkansas.

Since his arrival on campus, the Red Raiders have advanced to three NCAA Regional tournaments and one NCAA Championship in 2013, where the team finished 14th place - third highest in program history. In 2012, he played an integral role in leading the Red Raiders to a third place finish at the Big 12 Conference Championships.

He helped tutor top players Rebecca Sorenson and Nicole Forshner. In 2010, Rebecca Sorenson was the Southland Conference Player of the Year.

In 2009, Nichole Forshner took home the Southland Conference Player of the Year honor and that year's squad won three tournament championships. In addition, Central Arkansas moved from outside the top 100 to the top 50 in the Golfstat rankings.

As a professional, Jenkins played competitively for four years. A few highlights were qualifying for three Nationwide Tour events, finishing third at the 2004 Tightlies Tour event in Longview, Texas, and winning a limited field event in 2004 in San Antonio, Texas.
