Jordan Surenkamp is a former basketball player and the head coach of Greensboro Swarm in the G League. Surenkamp became the third coach in the franchise’s history. He previously worked as a head video coordinator for two different teams, collecting experience for his big break.

The sports personality spent two years as an assistant coach for the University of South Alabama after his graduation. After that, he was promoted to the director of basketball operations before joining the development teams of a couple of other basketball teams. Having spent four years at South Alabama in various roles, he was experienced enough to coach an NBA team moving forward.

With the growing popularity of the G League, many are wondering about the coach’s personal information. So, let’s learn more about his family, career, and net worth in this article.

Valuable Collegiate Experience

Surenkamp was born on October 21, 1990, to American parents Rick Surenkamp and Karry Surenkamp. Born and raised in Indianapolis, Jordan went to Mooresville High School and was a part of their basketball team. In addition, he received Academic All-Conference honors and was also named captain.

Further details about the coach’s parents are scarce, and he is also pretty secretive about them. Still, from what we know, Jordan Surenkamp’s father, Rick, and mother, Karry, used to come to his basketball games when he was at college. So, both must have been supportive of his interests. Also, they must be very proud of their son’s achievement.

Jordan completed his Bachelor’s in Speech Communication and Rhetoric from Wabash College in 2013 before going to South Alabama to complete his Masters in Communication and Media Studies. While in the university, he was hired as the graduate assistant coach.
