In 2007 Jeff was hired as an assistant coach at his alma mater Stanford where he was the National Collegiate Player of the Year in 1998. He is credited with mentoring future Washington Nationals pitcher, Drew Storen. "Jeff had a tremendous impact on our pitching staff last year," commented [Cardinals head coach] Marquess. "We don't go anywhere without the pitching, and we went to the College World Series; Jeff deserves a lot of credit for that. There were a lot of obstacles in the way to be successful, and Jeff had a lot to do with our guys overcoming that and having career years."
