Dollar promoted to Assistant Basketball Coach at Richmond

 Darian Dollar, who served as Video Coordinator for the Spider men’s basketball program last season, has been promoted to Assistant Coach/Director of Basketball Operations & Recruiting, Head Coach Chris Mooney announced. 

“Since coming to Richmond, Darian has demonstrated the ability to help our program in so many ways,” said Mooney. “Whether it’s helping us scout our next opponent, managing our recruiting operations, working with our players, or any of the other tasks he performs each day, Darian has proven to be a tremendous asset to Spider basketball.”

Dollar’s new role will allow him to perform the same on- and off-court tasks as the rest of the coaching staff, with the exception of off-campus recruiting. He will assist with scouting, player development, and more while serving as the program’s primary liaison to other departments in Spider Athletics and across the University. 

Dollar, who came to Richmond last summer, helped the Spiders to a 23-10 record and the program’s first regular season Atlantic 10 title last season. Prior to joining Richmond, he spent one year as an assistant coach at Indian Hills (IA) Community College, where he helped the Warriors to a 29-5 record and a spot in the semifinals of the 2023 National Junior College Athletic Association Men’s Basketball National Tournament.

Dollar also served as a graduate assistant at Florida State, earning a Master’s of Education degree while working under Seminoles head coach Leonard Hamilton. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of South Florida, serving as a team manager for the men’s basketball program for three seasons.
