Tulsa WBB names Brotherton as Coordinator of Player Development

The University of Tulsa Head Coach Angie Nelp announced the addition of Doug Brotherton as coordinator of player development to the women’s basketball staff.
“I am so excited to welcome Doug and his family to TU,” Nelp said.  “He brings an incredible wealth of basketball knowledge to our program and has made player development his professional focus for more than a decade.  From building a high school girls’ powerhouse in Texas to his experience in the professional ranks, he brings with him an elite level of expertise coupled with relationships among some of the best skill development organizations in the country.  Most importantly, Doug is committed to developing our players for success off the court and carrying out the mission of The University of Tulsa.”  
Brotherton comes to Tulsa from The Village School [Houston, Texas], where he has served as the varsity girls basketball coach for the last nine years.  In the past three years, Brotherton led his teams to a 98-10 record, claimed three-straight district and regional championships, and advanced to the state championship game in each of those seasons.  In 2020, The Village School won the TAPPS 6A Girls Basketball Championship, the first in school history and the first for a Houston area school in over 30 years.  For his efforts, Brotherton was named the 2020 Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC) Coach of the Year and the 2020 VYPE Houston Coach of the Year.
Brotherton took a program with just 17 players in his first year (2012) to as many as 70 players to form five teams for grades 6-12 at The Village School by 2020.  Brotherton led The Village School to their first playoff appearance for a girls’ sports team in school history, qualifying for the TAPPS 4A state tournament, and had six-straight 20+ win seasons.
During his time at The Village School, Brotherton also served as an assistant athletic director, physical education department chair and sports information director.  In those roles, he oversaw the entire physical education program, managed and evaluated staff, was in charge of the event and facilities schedule, oversaw the digital boards on campus and managed all social media accounts for the athletics department, while also coaching volleyball, football, golf, baseball and basketball throughout his time at The Village School. 
Brotherton also served as the Chicago Bulls regional scout for two years (2016-18), was the head men’s basketball coach at Mid-Michigan Community College (2010-12) and the varsity girls basketball coach at Shepherd High School (2005-11).
Brotherton serves as the executive director of Coaches Edge, a company that has created a community workspace for coaching development.  He manages all aspects of the company, including staffing, product development, budget, partnerships and sponsorships.
Brotherton and his wife, Megan, have three daughters: Madison, Peyton and Taylor.
