The 2018-2019 season marks Darius Prince's third season as an assistant coach with Penn State Greater Allegheny. Prince has worked closely with head coach Tyler Care over those three seasons and has been one of the motivating factors to the team's recent success working with the guards and serving as a defensive specialist.
During Prince's tenure as an assistant coach, PSUGA has made it to the Penn State University Athletic Conference Tournament in each of those three years while making the United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship in two of the three years. He has worked with some of the top players in program history including helping Curtis Newby capture the all-time rebounding record in PSUGA Men's Basketball history.
Away from the basketball court, Prince is in his second season as a Wide Reciever for the Philadelphia Soul of the Arean Football League where he signed late in the 2017 season. In two regular season games last year, he totaled nine catches for 103 yards and three touchdowns. He helped lead the Soul to their second straight ArenaBowl title and was named the ArenaBowl XXX MVP pulling in two touchdown catches in his teams win. He was the first rookie since Rick Hamilton to win the award dating back to ArenaBowlXII.

Prince was a 4-time PSUAC All-Conference player, 2-time First Team USCAA All-American, and 1,000-point scorer over his 4 years of college basketball.
