Je'Ney Jackson joined the strength and conditioning staff at Indiana University on July 7, 2010, and works with the nationally prominent Hoosier men's basketball program as well as men's golf. His efforts were crucial in helping IU win the 2013 Big Ten Championship and five players off that team will sign professional contracts, including Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller, who were taken second and fourth respectively in the 2013 NBA Draft. He brought eight years of experience as a strength coach (including a stint as the men's basketball strength coach for IU assistant Steve McClain at Wyoming) on the Division I level and five years as a position coach, most notably at Kansas. Jackson was at Southern Mississippi from February 2010 through July 2010, after spending five years with the Kansas football program, including the last three years as cornerbacks coach. Prior to that, Jackson was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at KU for two seasons and six years as strength and conditioning coach at Wyoming. At Kansas, Jackson mentored Aqib Talib, who earned consensus All-America honors and was a first-round NFL draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Chris Harris, who was tabbed a Freshman All-America Honorable Mention pick by the Sporting News. An All-WAC cornerback as a senior at Wyoming, Jackson was a four-year letterman for the Cowboys from 1994-97 and earned a biology degree from UW in 1998. He finished his Cowboys' career with 85 unassisted tackles, 129 total tackles and seven interceptions. As a junior, he appeared in all 12 games for the Cowboys at corner. Jackson put together an outstanding senior season as a starter at left corner, earning All-WAC First Team honors. He was second on the team in interceptions with five and also had 37 total tackles and broke up eight passes.
