In Oliver’s fourth year, 2016-17, he helped the program to a dramatic turnaround, as the Tigers won 11 more games than the previous season, including the team’s first win in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament since 2014. He also helped Clemson to an 11-2 record in nonconference games, the program’s best nonconference record since 2003-04.
This is Oliver’s 16th season working with Head Coach Audra Smith, as the two were assistant coaches on Debbie Ryan’s staff at Virginia from 2002-04, and then Oliver served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for nine years under Smith at UAB from 2004-13.
During his nine seasons in Birmingham, Oliver coached two Honorable Mention All-Americans, six All-Conference USA selections and three Conference USA Freshman of the Year award recipients. Over his final four seasons, he helped the Blazers to 74 wins and two postseason appearances, including a 20-win season and the WBI Championship in 2011.
Oliver was a standout player at the University of Richmond, where he was named the CAA Tournament MVP in 1998, and was a two-time team captain. He earned a degree in Speech Communication from Richmond in 1998.
The native of Faison, N.C. is the brother of Anthony Oliver, a four-year letterwinner at Virginia and Smith’s husband. Daryl and his wife Andrea have four children, two sets of twins, DJ, JR, Aiden and Averi.
