Bryce Douglas Added To Georgia Basketball Staff
ATHENS, Ga. — Bryce Douglas has been named Special Assistant to the Head Coach and Director of Scouting for Georgia Basketball, head coach Mike White announced on Thursday.
Douglas joins the Bulldogs after spending the previous five seasons on White’s staff at Florida. His résumé also includes experience working with Duke’s 2015 NCAA Championship team, two seasons with the Phoenix Suns and assisting USA Basketball training camps leading up to the 2016 Olympic Games.
“Bryce has a huge work capacity and a passion for analytics,” White said. “He’s become very integral relative to our scouting efforts and more. His roles are diverse and numbered.”
“I’m extremely excited to join Georgia Basketball,” Douglas said. “I’ve heard great things about Athens, 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’ Director of Scouting for three seasons before being promoted to Special Assistant Coach for his final two campaigns in Gainesville. During his tenure, Florida advanced to postseason play each season possible, with bids to the 2018, 2019 and 2021 NCAA Tournaments and to the 2022 NIT. In addition, the Gators were a consensus pick by bracketologists for an NCAA bid in 2020 before the cancellation of “March Madness.”
Douglas’ duties at Florida included coordination of self-scouting and oversight of the program’s video staff, as well as assisting with developing the Gators’ offensive playbook.
From 2015-17, Douglas served as a scout/analyst for the Suns, making significant contributions in scouting and team analysis. He created and implemented new opponent scouting templates for team and coaches meetings, as well as self-scouting materials incorporated into the team’s daily workflow. Douglas also assisted with on-court player development workouts throughout the season.
While working with the Suns, Douglas assisted with USA Basketball mini camps for the Senior National Team during its preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympics. His duties included assisting with on-court drills and workouts along with additional video and operational tasks.
Douglas spent the 2014-15 season as an assistant video coordinator at Duke, primarily focusing on opponent and self-scouting breakdowns. That season, the Blue Devils captured the 2015 NCAA Championship and finished with a 35-4 record.
Douglas was an assistant coach at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash., for two seasons from 2011-13. The Blues compiled a 37-16 record during that span, producing the best back-to-back records in school history at that time and finishing second in the Northwest Conference each season. Individually, David Michaels and Ben Eisenhardt earned All-America honors en route to winning NWC MVP honors in 2012 and 2013, respectively. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Douglas directed Whitman’s youth basketball camps and founded a fund-raising 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 an 86-23 record during that span. Puget Sound captured Northwest Conference titles during Douglas’ freshman and senior seasons, advancing to the NCAA D-III “Elite Eight” in 2006 and the “Sweet 16” in 2009.
A native of Tacoma, Wash., Douglas double-majored in Psychology and Business at Puget Sound, graduating in 2009. He earned a master’s degree in Leadership Studies from San Diego in 2011.
