One of FGCU’s first players in program history, Darrin Wallace returns to FGCU men’s basketball as the team’s video coordinator for the 2010-11 season.
Wallace will be in charge of the team’s video breakdown, film exchange, scouting report edits and serve as the video editing software liaison for the staff. The former FGCU point guard is in charge of the team’s move to XOS Digital Coaching Technologies for film breakdown.
Wallace comes to FGCU after serving three seasons (2007-10) as the head coach at Gateway Charter High School in Fort Myers. At Gateway, Wallace led the Griffins to 27 wins over three seasons after the school had produced just 10 in the previous three years before his arrival. Gateway also picked up the school’s first win in the District Playoffs last season.
Prior to taking over at Gateway, Wallace was an assistant coach at Cape Coral High School from 2003-06, while also serving as an AAU coach in Southwest Florida and working a variety of different basketball camps.
Wallace was one of two seniors on the inaugural FGCU team in 2002-03 FGCU that went 23-9.
"It’s truly an honor to be back at Florida Gulf Coast University. I have so many great memories from FGCU as a former player and I hope to create many more,” said Wallace. “This is a terrific staff combined with a talented group of players. I am extremely excited about the future of this program."
