Jodie Berry is in her third season as an assistant coach with the Oregon women’s basketball program.
The long-time assistant coach under Kelly Graves serves as Oregon’s post coach, helping develop star forward Jillian Alleyne over the previous two seasons. Alleyne was named an All-American in both 2014-15 and 2015-16 - both seasons under Berry - and finished her career with the third most rebounds (1,712) and the second most double-doubles (92) in NCAA history. Alleyne owns both Oregon's and the Pac-12's single-game, single-season and career rebounding records and is just the third player in league history to score 2,000+ points and grab 1,500+ rebounds, joining Chiney Ogwumike and Cheryl Miller.
Berry joined the Oregon coaching staff in 2014 after working with new head coach Kelly Graves at Gonzaga for 11 seasons.
Berry served as the director of women’s basketball operations at Gonzaga for two seasons before being promoted to an assistant coach for the 2005-06 campaign. She served as Graves’ top assistant for her final six seasons with the Bulldogs, starting in 2008. Working with the offense, Gonzaga led the nation in scoring during the 2010-11 season, averaging 85.3 points per game. The Bulldogs also shot 49.4 percent from the floor that season, good for second-best in the NCAA. Gonzaga won the WCC regular season title in 10 of her 11 years on the bench and advanced to the NCAA Tournament seven times. At Gonzaga, Berry coached five All-Americans, 14 all-WCC performers and five WNBA draft picks, including the No. 3 pick overall pick in 2011, Courtney Vandersloot. Berry was instrumental in signing Vandersloot as well.
In her own playing career, Berry earned four letters at Western Washington University. She finished her career as WWU’s career leader in three-pointers (210) and free throw percentage (81.9) and earned all-Great Northwest Athletic Conference honors in 2001 and 2002. Western Washington posted a 95-24 record during Berry’s four-year career and four trips to the NCAA Division II Tournament. The squad made a final four appearance in 2000.
Berry (Kaczor) married her husband, Eric Berry, in 2005 and the couple welcomed their son Tyson in 2010.
