Jung takes new gig at West L.A. College

 

Former St. Monica boys’ basketball head coach Khi-Min Jung has signed on to be an assistant at nearby West Los Angeles College.

Newly-hired West L.A. head coach Chris Ackers added Jung to his staff earlier this month.

In his three years at St. Monica, Jung finished with an overall record of 45-39 according to MaxPreps.com. St. Monica reached the playoffs in all three of his seasons at the helm.

Before taking the St. Monica job, Jung was an assistant at crosstown Santa Monica where he was an assistant under head coach James Hecht for two seasons.

“This is a step up for me,” Jung said. “I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

The move to West L.A. is somewhat a homecoming for Jung, who grew up in nearby Culver City.
