Keith Russell "Mister" Jennings (born 2 November 1968 in Culpeper, Virginia) is an American basketball coach and retired professional basketball player in the NBA.

Jennings, a 5'7" (1.70 m) point guard, attended East Tennessee State University for four academic years (1987-1991). He spent three seasons in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors (1992-95), playing in 164 games and averaging 6.6 points and 3.7 assists in 18.0 minutes per game. He was not selected in the NBA draft, and started his NBA career as free agent. He was selected by the Toronto Raptors in the 1995 expansion draft, but did not play for them. He also played professionally in Europe. Jennings won the 1991 Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award, given to the most outstanding collegiate senior six feet tall and under, and was a second-team consensus All-American. He also led the NCAA Division I that year in three-point field goals, shooting 59 percent.[1]

From 2004-2007, he was the head coach of the boys' varsity basketball team at the private Highland School in Warrenton, Virginia. He claims the job left him unfulfilled because the players were not motivated enough due to what he claims as their "[pretty much having] had their way in life".[1] Jennings joined the staff at his alma mater East Tennessee State as a graduate assistant coach for the 2007-2008 season while he completed his degree.[1] He is currently an assistant coach at Science Hill High School in Johnson City, Tennessee.
