Scott William Brooks (born July 31, 1965 in French Camp, California) is a retired American professional basketball player and the current head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder of the NBA. A 5' 11" (1.80 m) point guard, Brooks played collegiately at San Joaquin Delta College and Texas Christian University (TCU), before finishing his final two years at the University of California, Irvine.[1] He was inducted into UCI's Hall of Fame in 2001.

Brooks played ten seasons (1988-1998) in the NBA, appearing as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers, and was a member of Houston's 1994 NBA Championship team.

He also played in the CBA (under Bill Musselman with the Albany Patroons) and the defunct World Basketball League (WBL) for the Fresno Flames. He was named to the CBA's all-rookie team in 1988 and was a member of Albany's CBA Championship team that same season.

He currently serves as head coach for the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, taking over the position initially on an interim basis for fired P. J. Carlesimo on November 22, 2008.[2] Previously, he served as an assistant coach for the NBA's Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets. Scott Brooks was named the Oklahoma City Thunder's official head coach for the upcoming season.

Brooks attended East Union High School in Manteca, California.
