Clifford Eugene Levingston (born January 4, 1961 in San Diego, California) is a retired American basketball player in the NBA. Levingston starred at Wichita State University before being drafted by the Detroit Pistons in 1982. After two seasons with the Pistons, he was traded to the Atlanta Hawks, with whom he would spend the prime of his career.

After six seasons with the Hawks, Levingston joined the Chicago Bulls, with whom he won two championship rings in 1991 and 1992. From 1992 to 1994 he played overseas for PAOK BC of the Greek League as such he played in the final four of the European championship. In 1994 he returned to America and joined the Denver Nuggets, and retired from the league in 1995 with career totals of 5,888 points, 4,307 rebounds, and 593 blocked shots.

In 2000, Levingston began his coaching career as an assistant coach with the Fort Wayne Fury of the CBA. In 2001, he served as an assistant coach with the Dodge City Legend of the USBL. In 2002, he returned to Dodge City to serve his first stint as a professional league head coach; that year the Legends won the USBL title, and Levingston was named USBL Coach of the Year.

In 2003, he was sentenced to four months in prison for failure to pay child support.[1]

From 2003 to 2004, Levingston served as an assistant coach for the Harlem Globetrotters. In 2004, he coached the St. Louis Flight of the ABA.

As of 2005, Levingston was hired as assistant coach of the Gary Steelheads of the CBA; that year the Steelheads played their best season in franchise history, though they lost the Championship game. In 2006, he briefly served as assistant coach for the Kansas Cagerz, and in November he was officially hired by the Gary Steelheads (of the USBL), as head coach for the 2007 season.

In the fall of 2007 Micheal Ray Richardson was fired by the Oklahoma Cavalry of the CBA. Levingston was hired to replace him.
