Danielle Daniel came to Florida Atlantic in 2003 and has worn many hats since that time. Most recently, Daniels returns to a role as the department's liaison for housing and freshman admissions, a position she served briefly before a seven month stint as the Interim Assistant AD for Business and Finance. In 2015 Daniel assumed the duties of Associate AD/Administration.
She assumed the position of Assistant Athletics Director for Business in October of 2010 after three years as a coordinator in the business office. She moved into the business office after nearly five years of work with the facilities and game operations staff.
Daniel came to Florida Atlantic in October of 2003 assuming a position well after the fall seasons started. The Evansville (IN) native showed outstanding organizational skills preparing and managing the 2003 Atlantic Sun Conference Championship as if she had been planning for months.
Prior to FAU, Daniel worked as a graduate assistant softball coach at nearby Lynn University where she obtained a Master's degree in Sport and Athletic Administration. While at Lynn, she was part of a coaching staff that led the Knights to their first NCAA Regional Tournament.
FAU, not softball, is what brought Daniels to Florida. After graduating from the University of Southern Indiana with a bachelor of science in teaching in 1998, Daniel joined the FAU women's basketball staff as an administrative assistant, a position she served in 1999-2000.
Athletically, Daniels was a four-year letter winner at USI and was a member of both the conference and regional championship team.
