Darrick Gibbs completed his 10th season as an assistant coach with the University of Miami women's basketball team and helped guide the Hurricanes to their sixth consecutive postseason appearance in 2014-15.
Gibbs has been vital to the Hurricanes' success. He is responsible for post development and scheduling and his recruiting efforts have helped Miami earn three top-25 classes during his tenure.
Gibbs joined the UM coaching ranks prior to the 2005-06 season, and helped lead UM to a 17-13 record and an appearance at the 2006 WNIT in his first season with the Hurricanes.
Prior to his arrival at UM, Gibbs served as an assistant coach under Katie Meier at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte for two seasons from 2003-05. While at Charlotte, Gibbs helped Meier lead the 49ers to two WNIT appearances, including Charlotte's first postseason victory with a 78-71 win over Clemson in the 2004 WNIT. The 49ers put together 39-23 record in those two seasons, including a 22-9 mark in 2004-05 to tie for the third-most single-season wins in Charlotte history.
As one of the 49ers' main recruiting contacts, Gibbs played a major role in putting together their 33rd-ranked 2004 recruiting class during his first season at Charlotte.
Gibbs joined the Charlotte coaching staff in 2003 following a two-year stay at the College of Charleston where he served as an assistant coach from 2001-03. His responsibilities with the Cougars included recruiting, organizing practice schedules, scouting opponents and coordinating team travel.
Prior to his stint at the College of Charleston, Gibbs spent three seasons at Wofford College. As an undergraduate, he served as a student assistant with the Terriers from 1998-00, and remained with the team as an assistant during the 2000-01 season.
Originally from Pawleys Island, S.C., Gibbs received a bachelor's degree in psychology from Wofford in 2000.
Gibbs and his wife D'Erica were married in April of 2009 and have two daughters, Daisha Denise and Desiree Ciara.
