Jeffrey (Jeff) Reed Judkins (born March 23, 1956 in Salt Lake City, Utah) is a retired American professional basketball player and current head coach of the Brigham Young University (BYU) Cougars women's basketball team,[1] a position he has held since summer 2001[2] after serving as their assistant coach in 2000–01.[1] A 6'6", 185-lb shooting guard, he played college basketball at the University of Utah from 1974 to 1978[1] and had a career in the NBA from 1978 to 1983. He was all-state in football, baseball as well as basketball.[1][3]

Judkins played basketball at Highland High School in Salt Lake City, where his jersey no. 34 was retired in February 2006.[3] After high school, he played with the University of Utah under Utes head coach Jerry Pimm.[3]

Judkins was selected by the Boston Celtics with the 8th pick in the 2nd round of the 1978 NBA Draft (he was Boston's second pick in that draft after Hall-of-Famer Larry Bird.[4]) As well as playing for the Celtics, Judkins spent time with the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers.[1][4] He holds career averages of 5.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.
