Former Azusa Pacific star Shannon Jenkins is entering her fourth consecutive season as a member of the Cougars' coaching staff after a brief haiatus from the program. In 2005 Jenkins (then Shannon Coe) was named the GSAC Player of the Year and NAIA All-American after leading the team to a conference title and a trip to the NAIA quarterfinals. That season she led the Cougars in goals (16), assists (10), and points (42); all while helping the team post a 17-1-4 record.
Jenkins, who transferred from Florida State after her one season in Tallahassee, recorded five game-winning scores her senior year, and finished her collegiate career with 35 goals. Despite spending only three seasons with the Cougars she ranks in the top-10 in program history in three major categories: goals (9th; 35), assists (3rd; 27), and points (7th; 97).
She and her husband Brad, who works as a Case Work Supervisor at Boy's Republic in Chino Hills, have been married since 2007. The couple has two children, their daughter Sawyer Jenkins was born 2009 and their son Barrett was born in 2012. They currently reside in Pomona.
She earned a B.A. in Global Studies before getting her M.A. in Education with a concentration in Digital Teaching and Learning.
