Jeffrey Lee Reynolds (born September 7, 1956) is an American college basketball coach. He is an assistant basketball coach under Billy Kennedy at Texas A&M. Reynolds served as the head men's basketball coach at North Carolina Wesleyan College in 1985–96, Wingate University from 1997 to 2000, and the United States Air Force Academy from 2007 to 2012.
Early life and playing career
Born in Mountain City, Tennessee, Reynolds played college basketball at Surry Community College from 1974 to 1976 then at UNC Greensboro from 1976 to 1978. As a junior in 1976–77, Reynolds averaged 6.3 points.
Reynolds started his college coaching career at James Madison University in 1981, serving as a part-time assistant. He also served as an assistant coach at Randolph-Macon College from 1982 to 1985, Winthrop from 1986 to 1990, UNCW from 1990 to 1994, UNC Greensboro from 1994 to 1997, and Tulane from 2002 to 2007.
After two seasons as an assistant coach at the United States Air Force Academy, in April 2007 Reynolds was named to succeed Jeff Bzdelik as head coach. Athletic director Hans Mueh said he was "absolutely blown away by (Reynolds’) passion, emotion and vision." In five seasons, Reynolds guided the Falcons to one postseason appearance and was one of only two coaches in program history with multiple conference tournament wins. He was fired on February 8, 2012.
Reynolds then became Director of Men's Basketball Operations at Marquette, where he served from 2012 to 2014 before taking his current position with Virginia Tech. While at Marquette, the Golden Eagles advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
