HEAD COACH: STEVE HUNG
Coach Steve Hung is returning to IHS for his second coaching stint with the Jaguar family. Coach Steve was an assistant coach on the IHS Men’s Varsity team under Paul Cortes during the Jaguar’s 2016-2017 championship season. In his new role, he will serve as the Head Coach for the Men’s JV team.
Coach Steve grew up in San Francisco and played organized basketball throughout his youth and high school years. He is a graduate of Lowell High School and the University of San Francisco with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Economics. Prior to earning his degree, Coach Steve spent four years on active duty in the U.S. Navy with
naval commendations from Operation Desert Shield.
Coach Steve’s coaching experience includes serving as head coach for several youth teams. He has coached AAU teams with Bay City Basketball and the SF Blue Devils, an AAU team he started who also won their Bay City’s “City League” division championship in 2017. He has also coached CYO teams at St. Thomas the Apostle School (STA). He has led his (STA) team to back-to-back championships in the competitive CYO 3rd and 2 nd Divisions.
Coach Steve firmly believes in developing and honing his coaching skills. His has attended several Nike coaching clinics across the country. He is also an avid student of the PGC/Glazier Coaching Clinics, where the focus is on learning to teach the modern game of basketball in addition to teaching important life lessons to players.
One of Coach Steve’s main mantra is Championship Culture. “Championship Culture”
is not just about winning championships. It is about understanding how “You cannot always control the OUTCOME, but you can always control your OUTPUT (aka effort).” This mantra applies on the court, in the classroom, and in your everyday life.
Coach Steve’s objectives this season are to get his team to “get better each week” and prepare them with the right skillsets, both mentally and physically, for the rigors of playing varsity basketball in the near future.
Off the court, Coach Steve has spent the last 20 years at Charles Schwab Investment Mgmt., Inc. (CSIM) as a Senior Portfolio Manager, where he manages mutual funds
and ETFs focused on corporate bonds. He loves spending time with his family and is very thankful to his wife, Jackie, and sons, Xander and Reese, for allowing him to pursue his passion as a basketball coach.
Regarding the next school year and athletic competition, we have been following the California Interscholastic Federation press release announcing new dates for sports seasons, and we are working with the North Coast Section and Bay Area Conference to introduce a plan for a complete sports offering for student-athletes WHEN THIS IS PERMITTED.
While we are still working out details, we know that we will not be starting a traditional fall season on November 2nd, as originally planned. Our Athletic Department is working with our coaches to hold regular, synchronized workouts and team meetings for student-athletes closer to their scheduled season.
More information will be available in mid-August, and we encourage all students interested in participating in athletics to complete their required yearly physical. When we are able to compete again, that will be required. More information will be directly communicated from our Athletic Department, but in the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Director of High School Athletics, Sara Johnson (email@example.com).
