Head Coach - 6th Season

Coach Hamilton is entering his Sixth year at Graceland University and fifth as the Head Men's Basketball Coach.  During the 2011-2012 campaign the Jackets went an impressive 20-11, the first winning season as well as 20 win season in 15 years. 

Last year's successes included a first round conference post season win, advancing to the semi-final game for the first time in several years.  After the conclusion of the season the Jackets set a program record with four all-conference honors including the Runner-Up POY and Honorable Mention-All American Brad Burgus. 

During each of the last three season Coach Hamilton's squads have improved their overall record, conference record and conference standing; the only HAAC basketball program to accomplish such a feat during that time. 

With an exciting recruiting class and the return of a strong nucleus Hamilton is expecting great things from the 2012-2013 Men's Basketball team and expects the program to take another step forward.  


Coach Hamilton began his coaching career at Campbellsville University, where he was a Graduate Assistant Men's Basketball Coach.  In his two year stint at Campbellsville the Tigers compiled an overall record of 54-13.  

During the 2005-2006 season the Tigers captured its first ever Mid-South Conference Championship and advanced to the second round of national tournament play.  The following year Campbellsville again advanced to the second round at the national tournament. 

After Campbellsville, Hamilton was named Assistant Men's Basketball Coach at Graceland University.  However this role was short lived as he was announced head coach in the summer of 2008.


During his time at Graceland Hamilton has produced one Honorable Mention All-American/Conference Runner-Up POY/first team, three second team, two third team and three honorable mention all-conference players and has had 8 Academic All-Americans. 

During his tenure the basketball program has had an excellent graduation rate and is coming off a team GPA of 3.3 during the 2011-2012 school year.  In Hamilton's two years at CU, he helped develop two conference POY's, both of which were named second-team All-Americans, as well as four other all-conference members.
Hamilton played four seasons at Florida Atlantic University and was a part of FAU's first ever NCAA tournament berth in 2002.   Coach Hamilton graduated from Humble (TX) High School in 2000; where he was a two-time first team all district member along with two years of honorable mention all state honors.  


Hamilton earned his bachelor's degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion from Florida Atlantic University in 2004 and his masters in Psychology/Sociology at Campbellsville University in 2007.  


Jeffrey and his wife Brittany reside in Lamoni and are the proud parents of two boys Carter (4) and Cole (3), and are expecting their third child to arrive in February.
