Jason Andre Caffey (born June 12, 1973) is an American former professional basketball player who won two championship rings with the Chicago Bulls in the late 1990s. He later became the head coach of the American Basketball Association's Mobile Bay Hurricanes.

Basketball career

Caffey was born in Mobile, Alabama. A 6'8" power forward from the University of Alabama, he was selected by the Bulls with the 20th pick of the 1995 NBA Draft. He averaged 7.3 points per game during the Bulls' second consecutive championship run in 1996–97.

Before Caffey could win a third championship ring with the Bulls, he was traded to the Golden State Warriors in the middle of 1997–98. In the summer of 1999, he re-signed with the Warriors for seven years and $35 million. He averaged career highs of 12.0 points and 6.8 rebounds during the 1999–2000 season with the Warriors.

Caffey joined the Milwaukee Bucks in 2000, with whom he played three more seasons before his career fizzled out amidst a series of personal problems, including an anxiety attack in 2002[1] and an assault charge in 2003.[2] The Bucks bought out the remaining two seasons ($11.8 million) of his contract before the 2003–04 season started.[3]

In June 2010, Caffey was named head coach of the American Basketball Association expansion team, the Mobile Bay Hurricanes.[4]


Personal Life

Caffey has fathered at least ten children with eight different women.[5]
