Darryl Brown spent five seasons on Pepperdine's coaching staff (2008-09 through 2012-13), the first three as an assistant coach and the final two as the associate head coach.

During his five years in Malibu, the Waves recorded three straight third-place finishes in the West Coast Conference, reached the final of the 2010 WCC Championships and advanced to the 2010 and 2011 Women's NIT.

Brown was previously the head women's basketball coach at Cheyney University, an NCAA Division II school in Cheyney, Pa., for two seasons (2006-07 and 2007-08), and was an assistant coach there the previous two years.

His 2007-08 team posted the school's best record in 18 years and Brown earned Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honors. Cheyney went 11-16 overall and took third place in the PSAC's Eastern Division at 7-5. He was the interim coach in 2006-07. His squads posted better than a 3.2 grade-point average.

At the collegiate level, Brown also served as an assistant coach at Temple for two seasons (1998-99 and 1999-2000) and at Montclair State for one season (2001-02).

He began his coaching career by working with youth in the Philadelphia area through his involvement with the Police Athletic League. In three years as an assistant coach at Norristown Area (Pa.) High School, he helped the team post three 20-win seasons and appearances in the District Final Four and the second round of the state playoffs. Seven players received Division I scholarships and three others went on to play at the Division II level.

Several players throughout Brown's coaching career have gone on to play professionally overseas.

A native of Philadelphia, Brown attended Overbrook High School and graduated from The Fox School of Business at Temple University in 1995.
