Yale Men’s Basketball Staff to Host Virtual Coaching Clinic on Dec. 12

Free clinic will Feature Guest Speaker Seth Greenberg of ESPN

Three-time Ivy League Coach of the Year James Jones and his staff will host a virtual Coaching Clinic on Saturday, Dec. 12 beginning at 9 a.m. The clinic will feature an X’s and O’s session with the Yale coaches and special guest speakers, including ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg. Registration is free for coaches.
Jones, the all-time winningest men’s basketball coach at Yale, is one of the most successful coaches in Ivy League history. He is the longest tenured coach in the league, has amassed 333 career victories, which is the second most in league history, and his 180 Ivy wins are the third most in league history.

Jones, who is in his 22nd year at the helm, has guided the Bulldogs to five Ivy League championships – 2002, 2015, 2016, 2019, 2020 – three NCAA Tournament berths – 2016, 2019, 2020 – and six postseason appearances. His .612 winning percentage in Ivy games is by far the highest in school history.

Jones has presided over the most successful era in the long history of Yale Basketball. Over the last six seasons, Yale has a remarkable 63-21 Ivy record. During that stretch, the Bulldogs have won four league titles and earned three NCAA Tournament berths, including notching the first NCAA victory in school history.
Jones’ staff includes Associate Head Coach Matt Kingsley, Assistant Coach Justin Simon and Director of Operations Matt Elkin.
Kingsley has played an integral role in the most successful stretch in the long history of Yale Basketball. He was recently recognized as one of the top assistant coaches in the nation by The Athletic website. Simon is in his 10th year as an assistant coach.  He is the only person to win an Ivy League men’s basketball Championship at Yale as both a player (2002) and a coach (2015, 2016, 2019, 2020). Elkin joined the staff in October and comes to New Haven after serving as an assistant coach at the Windward School in Los Angeles, California.
