Robi Coker was promoted to Coordinator of Basketball Operations in June 2011 after four years as an operations assistant and video coordinator.
Coker handles a variety of duties within the program, including player development, travel arrangements, coordinating camps, scheduling and scouting.
After serving as video coordinator from 2006-07, Coker returned to that role with the Rebel staff prior to the 2008-09 season after a one-year stint as the head boys' basketball coach at Clay-Chalkville High School in Pinson, Ala., near Birmingham.
In his first year as a head coach at the high school level, Coker led Clay-Chalkville to 14 wins, its most in six years, and guided the Cougars to victories over three of the state's top-10 ranked teams.
A 2005 Jacksonville State graduate, Coker served a team manager for the Gamecocks. He was head manager during the 2003-04 campaign and served as the team's film coordinator in 2004-05.
In 2006, Coker fulfilled the teaching internship of his education degree at Geraldine High School, where he assisted with the varsity boys' basketball team. Working with first-year head coach Cale Black, Coker helped GHS improve from a 12-14 record to 20-9 and a regional tournament appearance.
Prior to attending JSU, Coker spent two years at Northeast Alabama State Community College. Throughout that time, he also coached the seventh-grade boys at his high school alma mater Crossville.
A native of Skirum, Ala., Coker was a two-time all-area selection in both basketball and football at Crossville. As a senior point guard in 2000, he helped coach Tracy Hulgan's Lions turn in a 28-7 record and reach the class 3A elite eight. Coker's 326 assists was four shy of the state record, and he concluded the year with school single-season and career records for assists and steals.
Born September 30, 1981, Coker is married to the former Melissa Norrell of Geraldine, Ala. The couple's first daughter, Lily Kate, was born on May 24, 2011.
