Assistant Coach (5th Season)


A sideline veteran with coaching experience at nearly every level, Assistant Coach Matt Klemin enters his fifth season as a member of the UC Davis women's basketball coaching staff, focusing his efforts on skill development, working with the Aggies' guards, opponent scouts, and helping coordinate the program's recruiting efforts.

Klemin joined the UC Davis sidelines prior to the 2011-12 season, in time to help the Aggies to a 17-13 record and a berth in the WNIT. With his assistance, guards Samantha Meggison (2011-12), Cortney French (2012-13) earned All-Big West Conference honors in his first two seasons, while also helping Kelsey Harris rank among the nation's top three-point shooters during her two seasons as an Aggie, eventually finishing No. 3 in the nation while setting school and conference records in numerous three-point categories in 2014-15.

Prior to the Aggies, Klemin spent five seasons as an assistant coach in Southern California, spending two years at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, California, one season at Azusa Pacific, and two more campaigns at Cal Baptist University in Riverside, California.

A 2004 graduate of Cal Poly, Klemin also spent two seasons as an assistant coach and director of basketball operations for the Mustangs' women's team from 2004-06, helping them to the second round of the conference tournament in his second year.

As an undergraduate, Klemin began his coaching career as an assistant varsity coach and junior varsity head coach at San Luis Obispo HS, while also holding positions at the AAU and middle school levels, as well as an instructor at a number of summer camps.

Klemin earned his bachelor's degree in graphic communications and added a master's degree in education administration from Cal Poly a year later. He and his wife, Lindsay, were married in 2014, and the couple resides in Sacramento.
