Jeff Rogers was named Berry's head men's basketball coach in April of 2013.

During his Berry tenure, Rogers has coached 11 SAA All-Conference selections and 16 SAA Academic Honor Roll honorees. He led the Vikings to back-to-back double-digit win seasons over the last two years, the most since 2010-11. 

Rogers came to Berry after serving as the head coach at Thomas More College—also an NCAA Division III institution—located in Crestview Hills, Ky. In four seasons, he led the Saints to a 77-34 (.694 win percentage) record. Rogers’ 2012-13 team went 23-5 and 14-2 in the Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC). He was named the conference coach of the year.

Rogers spent two seasons serving as an assistant for the Saints before becoming the head coach in 2009-10. That team won the most games in a single season at Thomas More, posting a 21-7 mark and winning a share of the PAC regular-season title. His team led the NCAA (at any division) in steals per game with 14.

In his second season (2010-11), Rogers led the Saints to a 13-14 overall record and an 8-6 PAC record to finish tied for fourth in the conference. The Saints advanced to the semifinals of the PAC Championship Tournament for the fourth straight year.

In 2011-12, Rogers guided the Saints to a 20-8 overall record and 13-3 mark in the Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC), as well as an appearance in the championship game of the PAC Tournament. After the season, he was named the PAC Coach of the Year.

A native of Louisville, Ky., Rogers earned his bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University in 1989 and a master’s degree from the University of Louisville in 1996. He began his coaching career in 1989 when he served as an intern with USA Basketball at the United States Olympic Committee Complex in Colorado Springs, Co., for a year.

Rogers then served as an intern with the University of Kentucky Basketball program in Lexington, Ky., from 1990-92. After leaving Kentucky, Rogers served as the Director of Basketball Operations at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in Kansas City, Mo., from 1992-1996.

In 1996, Coach Rogers returned to Kentucky and served as a high school head boys' coach for 10 years before joining former head coach John Ellenwood’s staff in 2007. Over the 10-year span of his high school coaching career, Rogers’ teams won over 70 percent of their games, compiling a 201-84 record (.705). His teams won four straight district championships and twice earned a regional title.

Rogers is the 11th head coach in Berry men’s basketball’s history.

Rogers and his wife, Stacy, have three daughters: Emma, Aubrey and Allyson.
