Jeff Lebby is in his seventh season at Baylor and his third as an assistant, coaching the running backs. 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.
After guiding Baylor's rushing attack to a No. 13 national ranking (259.7 yards per-game) in 2013 en route to the 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 Shock 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.
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.
