Jon Perry completed his fifth season as an assistant coach at Navy in the 2017-18 season. Perry plays a key role in the development of Navy's offensive game plan and opponent scouting and film breakdown. Perry is also the Recruiting Coordinator for the men's basketball program and is the Director of Navy Basketball Summer Camps and Clinics.

Perry is also responsible for perimeter player development and instruction, organizes scheduling of non-conference opponents, oversees student managers and oversees compliance with NCAA rules for the program.

Perry helped Navy to a 20-12 record in 2017-18. The 20 wins were the most by Navy since the 1999-00 season and were tied for the sixth-most in a single season in program history. Navy also won the 2018 Star Game by earning a 68-59 win at Army West Point.

Navy led the Patriot League in scoring defense, rebounding margin and offensive rebounds per game in 2017-18, and Navy ranked in the top-40 of the NCAA in scoring defense for the third-straight season.

Senior guard Shawn Anderson was named to the All-Patriot League First Team, while senior guard Bryce Dulin was named to the Patriot League All-Defensive Team.

In 2016-17, Perry 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.

Anderson was named to the All-Patriot League Second Team following the 2016-17 season and Dulin was named to the Patriot League All-Defensive Team.

In 2015-16, Perry 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.

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.

Perry helped Navy double its conference win total to eight victories in 2014-15, his second season at Navy. Navy won 13 games overall, which was a four-win improvement from the 2013-14 season. Navy posted three wins over Army in 2014-15, including a victory in the Patriot League Tournament. Worth Smith was named to the All-Patriot League First Team.

In his first season in 2013-14, Perry helped Navy improve its win total from the previous season and the team doubled its conference win total. Navy also ranked 57th in the country in scoring defense and had the second-lowest turnover total in school history.

Perry joined Navy after spending the previous three seasons as an assistant and associate head coach at Quincy (Ill.), an NCAA Division II member in the tradition-rich Great Lakes Valley Conference. Prior to that, Perry was on DeChellis' staff at Penn State as the Director of Basketball Operations and starred on the hardwood under DeChellis as East Tennessee State.

Perry spent three seasons on the Quincy staff, joining the Hawks on the bench prior to the 2010-11 season when they won the GLVC North championship, and was elevated to associate head coach prior to the 2011-12 season. Overall, the Hawks were 46-35 in Perry's three seasons as Quincy's top assistant. He coached five All-GLVC players and one all-region performer. Twelve student-athletes were named to the Academic All-GLVC list in the last three seasons.

Coach Perry came to Quincy from Penn State University, previously serving at the Director of Basketball Operations in the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Perry started with Penn State in the fall of 2004 as the video coordinator before being promoted to Director of Operations in 2008.

He was responsible for the Nittany Lions' scheduling, monitoring academic progress, team travel, player development, basketball camps, team managers and assisting DeChellis with day-to-day operations. During his time with Penn State, the Nittany Lions made two National Invitation Tournament (NIT) appearances, winning the 2009 title and a school-record 27 games. Perry also helped Penn State players achieve success in the classroom as the Nittany Lions produced multiple all-academic Big Ten student-athletes.

Before his tenure at Penn State, Perry was at East Tennessee State University, where he was both a player and a graduate assistant. During that time, the Buccaneers won four straight Southern Conference North Division titles and posted a record of 87-57. In Perry's first season as a graduate assistant (2002-03), ETSU went 20-11 overall, won the school's first conference tournament title since 1992 and nearly upset No. 2-seeded Wake Forest in the NCAA Tournament before falling, 75-72. During his second year as a graduate assistant (2003-04), ETSU finished with a program-best 15-1 record in the conference and won the Southern Conference North Division for the fourth straight year, their second overall regular-season title in four years. The Buccaneers went on to win the Southern Conference tournament for the second year in a row, again earning a trip to the NCAA tournament, where they gave fourth-seeded Cincinnati all it could handle in an 80-77 setback.

A native of Milton, W.Va., Perry graduated from ETSU earning his Bachelor of Science degree in sports management in 2002 and his Master of Arts degree in sports management in 2004. Perry is a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and resides in Annapolis with his wife Stacey.
