Jeff Lebby is entering his eighth season at Baylor, his first since being promoted to passing game coordinator and offensive recruiting coordinator in January 2015. He is in his fourth season coaching the running backs as an assistant coach.
Previously, from 2008 to 2011, he was the assistant director of football operations in charge of offensive quality control and the NFL liaison.
An up-and-coming force on the recruiting trail, Lebby was named a 2014 Top 10 Big 12 Recruiter by Rivals.com after helping Baylor sign a class ranked 22nd nationally by ESPN and 23rd by Scout.
Lebby has coached a 1,000-yard rusher in each of the three previous seasons. His 2014 primary back, first-team All-Big 12 honoree Shock Linwood, ran for 1,252 and 16 TDs for the Big 12 champion Bears rushing attack that averaged 215.5 yards per game.
After guiding Baylor's rushing attack to a No. 13 national ranking (259.7 yards per-game) en route to the 2013 Big 12 championship, Lebby was named the 2013 FootballScoop Running Back Coach of the Year. He coached first-team All-Big 12 and NFL draftee Lache Seastrunk, the first back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher in school history (1,177 in 2013) as well as first-team Freshman All-American Linwood.
In 2012 Lebby coached Baylor's dynamic duo of Seastrunk, who rushed for 1,012 yards, was named All-Big 12, Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year, and Holiday Bowl Offensive MVP, and Glasco Martin, who led the team with 15 touchdowns and ran for 889 yards. Baylor led the Big 12 with an average 231.7 yards per game on the ground.
Lebby joined the Baylor program in the spring of 2008 after coaching the offensive line/tight ends and teaching at Victoria Memorial (Texas) High School in the fall of 2007.
An offensive tackle as a prep for his father, Mike Lebby, at Andrews (Texas) High School, the younger Lebby earned all-state honors as a senior.
Lebby signed a National Letter of Intent with Oklahoma in 2002, however, an injury forced him to end his playing career. He spent his final four years at OU as a student assistant coach.
Lebby and his wife Staley, the daughter of Baylor head coach Art Briles, are the parents of one daughter, Kora.
