One of Mike White’s former Florida staffers is joining him at Georgia. UGA announced Thursday that Bryce Douglas has been named Special Assistant to the Head Coach and Director of Scouting for the Bulldogs.

Douglas was with White for 5 seasons at Florida. He was UF’s Director of Scouting for 3 seasons before being promoted to Special Assistant Coach for the last 2 seasons.

“Bryce has a huge work capacity and a passion for analytics,” White said via the program release. “He’s become very integral relative to our scouting efforts and more. His roles are diverse and numbered.”

Douglas also has experience as a scout with the Phoenix Suns for 2 seasons and an assistant video coordinator at Duke during the 2014-15 season.

“I’m extremely excited to join Georgia Basketball,” Douglas said via UGA. “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.”

White’s program made postseason play each season possible while Douglas was on staff. Florida reached the NCAA Tournament in 2018, ’19 and ’21. There was no NCAA Tournament in 2020. White took the Georgia job before UF’s first 2022 NIT game.
