Jeff Hardin - Head Coach
email Coach Hardin
I grew up a Lee's Summit kid, graduating from LSHS in 1993 when it was the only high school in town. I then attended the University of Missouri. That was when I met my wife, Carrie. We now have three kids: Connor, Grant, and Reese. Further, I started coaching basketball while attending MU, working with the boys at Rock Bridge High School. Over time (and with a small break from education), I coached with the O'Hara and Lee's Summit North boys teams, was the head coach at Moreland Ridge Middle School and then as the lead assistant at Blue Springs High School. I taught and coached at BSHS for 9 years, helping build that program to one that would eventually qualify for 5 Final Fours (and 4 State Finals) in my last five years with the program. That success led to the opportunity to take over the program at Lee's Summit West. I have been the head to coach at West since the 2014 season. During that time, we have been Conference Champions twice (2015 and 2018), District Champions twice (2014 and 2015) and advanced to the Final Eight once (2015).

I grew up in Lee's Summit and graduated from LSW in 2010 after 4 years of athletic participation for the Titans in several different sports, including basketball, cross country, track, volleyball and swim team. I continued my education and athletics at Missouri State University in Springfield where I ran for the university's cross country and track teams for one year. Upon graduation in Spring 2014 with a Bachelors degree in Exercise and Movement Science, I moved to Columbia, MO where I was the Varsity assistant cross country and track coach for Columbia Hickman High School. I was also on the coaching staff of the 2014-2015 Rockbridge Girls State Championship Swim Team. I moved back to Lee's Summit and now teach for my alma mater--Lee's Summit West. This is my fourth year coaching at West where I work with the Girls Cross Country, Girls Basketball and Girls Track and Field programs.
