Daryl James Gross (born June 20, 1961) is Vice President and Special Assistant to the Chancellor at Syracuse University, in Syracuse, New York.[1] Previously, he was the school's athletic director.

Gross received his bachelor's degree and played college football at University of California, Davis. Gross was a New York Jets scout when Pete Carroll was the Jets head coach, a relationship that led to him pushing for Carroll to be hired by USC.[2]

Formerly, Gross coached and worked at the University of Southern California in intercollegiate athletics after being a graduate coaching assistant (while earning his doctorate). While serving as senior associate athletic director, Gross was credited for bringing in head coach Pete Carroll for the Trojans football team.[2][3] In 2005, Gross became AD at Syracuse. In 2008, ESPN.com named Carroll's hiring #1 in a list of the Pac-10's Top 10 Moments Of BCS Era.[4]
