He briefly assisted the women’s program there before committing his focus to men’s volleyball and starting the Corsair’s first beach volleyball program. He helped the men’s team to a final four appearance and led the Corsairs to a pairs’ state championship in their first year as a CCCAA sport.

To teach high level competition through an emphasis on building community, being present, and being process-driven is how Daniel describes his coaching philosophy.

He loves building quality relationships with the athletes and watching them grow as both athletes and individuals.

Daniel has two children, and he loves spending his free time with them.
