Doug Brotherton has coached for 16 years and is in his 8th year at the helm of The Village School girls varsity basketball program (Houston, TX). Coach Brotherton’s coaching career started at Shepherd High School, where he became the youngest varsity coach in the State of Michigan, before leading the program to their first playoff win in 31 years. After four successful years of coaching at Shepherd High School, Coach Brotherton accepted the Head Coaching position at Mid Michigan Community College. At MMCC, Brotherton built the Men’s basketball program. In two short seasons, the Lakers were already ranked as the #2 junior college men’s basketball team in the state of Michigan. Coach Brotherton’s next job was at The Village School. In his six years, the Lady Vikings have never had a varsity player academically ineligible, including ten Academic All-State players in the past three years. The varsity team also increased their win total in each of his first five years. The Village Lady Vikings have averaged 25 wins per season, over the past three years, while being a mainstay in the Top 10 of the Large Private School State Rankings.
Coach Brotherton is also very involved at all levels of basketball. He spent two seasons as an NBA Regional Scout for the Chicago Bulls. He is a content contributor for FastModel Sports and the Founder of Dynamic Coaching Tools which provides resources, content, events, and services to help empower coaches to thrive in today’s competitive coaching landscape.
In 2018, Coach Brotherton was a National Winner of the Positive Coaching Alliance Double Goal Coach Award, which honors 50 coaches around the Country for their positive impact on the court, and in the lives of young people. Brotherton was also elected to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Large Private School Board. The past three summers, Doug developed the Jay Bilas Camp Coaches Packet, which is used for the coaching development program, and also worked Snow Valley Camps.
