Daryl Peter Earl Gibson (born 2 March 1975) is a former New Zealand rugby union footballer who played inside centre for the Crusaders in the southern hemisphere and the Bristol Shoguns, Leicester Tigers and Glasgow Warriors in the northern hemisphere. He played 19 tests for the All Blacks between 1999 and 2002. He joined the Bristol Shoguns in 2002, but after Bristol's relegation during the 2002/3 season he joined the Leicester Tigers at the end of 2003 along with fellow Bristol player Julian White. At the start of the 2007/8 season he moved north to play for the Glasgow Warriors in the Magners League.

In 2008, Gibson returned to New Zealand to become an assistant coach for the Crusaders in the Super Rugby competition.[1] In November 2012, the Waratahs announced Gibson's appointment as assistant coach commencing in 2013.[2] At the time he was touring Europe with the Māori All Blacks.[2]

Gibson is married to Liana and they have four children, including triplets.[3][4]
