ATHENS, GA – Bryce Douglas has been named Special Assistant for Head Coach and Director of Scouting for Georgia Basketball, head coach Mike White announced Thursday.
Douglas joins the Bulldogs after spending the previous five seasons on White’s staff in Florida. His resume also includes experience working with the Duke’s 2015 NCAA Championship team, two seasons with the Phoenix Suns and assisting USA Basketball training camps up to the 2016 Olympic Games.
“Bryce has a tremendous work capacity and a passion for analysis,” White said. “He has become very integrated in relation to our scouting efforts and more. His roles are diverse and numerous.”
“I’m extremely excited to join Georgia Basketball,” Douglas said. “I’ve heard good things about Athens, the UGA and the Bulldog Nation. I believe in Coach White’s vision and am eager to be a part of the process as we build that success.”
Douglas was the Gators’ scouting director for three seasons before being promoted to Special Assistant Coach for his last two campaigns in Gainesville. During his tenure, Florida went on to post-season play every possible season, with bids for the 2018, 2019 and 2021 NCAA tournaments and for the 2022 NIT. In addition, the Gators were a consensus choice of bracketologists for an NCAA bid in 2020 before the cancellation of “March Madness.”
Douglas ‘assignments in Florida included coordinating self-scouting and overseeing the program’s video staff, as well as helping develop the Gators’ offensive playbook.
From 2015-17, Douglas served as a scout / analyst for the Suns and made significant contributions to scouting and team analysis. He created and implemented new resistance scout templates for team and coach meetings, as well as self-scouting materials incorporated into the team’s daily workflow. Douglas also helped develop players on the field throughout the season.
While working with the Suns, Douglas assisted with the USA Basketball mini-camps for the senior national team during the preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Douglas spent the 2014-15 season as an assistant video coordinator at Duke, focusing primarily on opponent and self-scouting breakdowns. That season, the Blue Devils won the 2015 NCAA Championship and finished with a record of 35-4.
Douglas was an assistant coach at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, for two seasons from 2011-13. The Blues compiled a record of 37-16 during that time, producing the best back-to-back records in the school’s history at the time, finishing in second place in the Northwest Conference each season. Individually, David Michaels and Ben Eisenhardt achieved All-America honors on their way to winning NWC MVP honors in 2012 and 2013, respectively. In addition to his coaching duties, Douglas Whitman led youth basketball camps and founded a fundraising golf tournament.
From 2009-11, Douglas was a video coordinator and graduate assistant at the University of San Diego. Douglas played basketball at the University of Puget Sound from 2005-09, helping the Loggers compile a record of 86-23 during that time. Puget Sound won Northwest Conference titles during Douglas’ freshman and senior seasons, advancing to the NCAA D-III “Elite Eight” in 2006 and “Sweet 16” in 2009.
A resident of Tacoma, Washington, Douglas had a dual major in psychology and business at Puget Sound, graduating in 2009. He took a master’s degree in leadership studies from San Diego in 2011.
