Jeromy Yetter enters his third season as an assistant coach with the Navy men’s basketball program in 2017-18. Yetter assists in all aspects of the Navy basketball program, including recruiting, player development, opponent scouting and game-day preparation. Yetter also oversees the Navy Basketball Development Team (JV).

In 2016-17, Yetter helped Navy to a 16-16 overall record and a fourth-place finish in the Patriot League at 10-8. The Mids increased their conference win total for the fifth straight season and the 10 conference wins were the most for Navy since 2000.

As the fourth seed in the Patriot League Tournament, Navy defeated Holy Cross, 49-42, at home in the quarterfinal round to advance to the tournament semifinals for the first time since 2001. Navy fell to eventual tournament champion and No. 1 seed Bucknell in the semifinals, 70-65.

Junior guard Shawn Anderson was named to the All-Patriot League Second Team following the 2016-17 season and junior guard Bryce Dulin was named to the Patriot League All-Defensive Team.

In his first season at Navy in 2015-16, Yetter helped Navy post its most wins in seven years with the team's 19-14 record. Navy was 9-9 in the Patriot League and finished in a four-way tie for fourth place. Navy's six-win improvement from the 2014-15 season ranked as the fourth-best improvement from one year to the next in program history. Navy also set a program record for most road wins in a season with 11.

Navy's defensive efforts were a key to the team's success in 2015-16. Navy led the Patriot League in scoring defense (64.7) and field goal percentage defense (.413). Will Kelly was named the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year and was also named to the all-league second team. Tilman Dunbar was named to the All-Patriot League Third Team.

Yetter arrived at Navy after three successful seasons as the head coach at the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) in Newport, R.I. Yetter led a revitalization of the NAPS basketball program and several of Navy's key players spent a year at NAPS before arriving in Annapolis.

Yetter also served as the head coach of the University of Pittsburgh Greensburg, a Division III school just southeast of Pittsburgh. Yetter was the head coach of Pitt-Greensburg for the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons and also served as an Assistant Director of Athletics.

Prior to the head job at Pitt-Greensburg, Yetter served as an assistant men's basketball coach at Washington & Jefferson (2007-08), Tusculum (2005-07) and Slippery Rock (2004-05).

Yetter graduated from Lock Haven University in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in education. As the team captain of the men's basketball team, he helped the program to an appearance in the PSAC Tournament and was named a PSAC Scholar-Athlete in 2003.

Yetter also owns a master's degree in education from Lock Haven.

Yetter resides in Annapolis with his wife, Jessica, and son, Grayson (1).
