Stokes named Video Coordinator at Richmond

Darius Stokes is the new video coordinator for Richmond Spiders men’s basketball, the program announced on Tuesday. Stokes will manage all aspects of the team’s video operations and also contribute to opponent scouting and player recruitment.
“We’re thrilled to add a coach with Darius’ experience and abilities,” said head coach Chris Mooney. “He’s been involved with Division I basketball for more than a decade and I’m confident that he will have a tremendous impact on our program.”
Stokes has spent the last four seasons as part of the men’s basketball staff at Fairleigh Dickinson, serving as an assistant coach during the 2020-21 season following three seasons as the team’s director of basketball operations. In Stokes’ second season on staff, FDU went 21-14 and won the Northeast Conference Championship to advance to the 2019 NCAA Tournament, the sixth tournament appearance in school history.
Stokes spent the 2016-17 season as an administrative assistant with the men’s basketball team at the University of Iowa, where he started his career as a student-athlete in 2010. Stokes appeared in 38 games for the Hawkeyes over four seasons and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Human Physiology in 2014. He transferred to Fairleigh Dickinson later that year and started 28 games for the Knights during the 2014-15 season while earning a Master’s degree in Sports Administration. Following graduation, Stokes played professionally for UER Pineda de Mar in Spain for one season.
Stokes is the son of Greg Stokes, an All-Big Ten center at Iowa whose number 41 jersey has been retired by the Hawkeyes. He was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 33rd pick in the 1985 NBA Draft and went on to appear in 42 games over two NBA seasons. Stokes is the brother of Kiah Stokes, a three-time national champion at Connecticut who was the 11th overall pick in the 2015 WNBA Draft. She joined the Las Vegas Aces in 2021 following six seasons with the New York Liberty.
