Dan has been the Athletic Director at Davis College since November of 2013 and the head coach of the men’s basketball team since 2009. Before being promoted to AD, Dan served in various other positions at the college including Director of Marketing and Communications, Resident Director, and Assistant to Development.
During his first year as the Athletic Director, Dan led the Athletic Department to be accepted as member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). This was a big step for the Athletics Department at Davis College to become a part of a growing national association. Under his direction in 2015, the Falcons also gained membership to participate in the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC). In the fall of 2016, men’s and women’s cross country programs will be introduced for the first time in school history.
As the men’s basketball coach, Dan has accumulated the most wins by any coach at Davis College, including reaching the 100 win milestone on February 4, 2017. He led the program to three straight Shenandoah & Chesapeake Athletic Conference championships from 2011-2013. In addition, his teams won the Bible College National Championship three times in 2011, 2013, and most recently in 2015.
Dan understands what it takes to be a successful student athlete and has a strong desire to help others reach their full potential both on and off the basketball court. College athletics helps develop strong leadership skills as well as communication and teamwork. At Davis College, students will learn to utilize these skills as a means of ministry opportunities for Christ.
In 2004, Dan graduated from Susquehanna University and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After graduating, he started his coaching career as an assistant basketball coach at Broome Community College. After one year, he joined the Davis College staff as an assistant for two seasons before being named head coach.
Dan’s wife, Rebecca, graduated in 2008 from Davis College with a degree in counseling and is the COC Coordinator for the Southern Tier Homeless Coalition. They reside in Windsor with their 2 children, Hunter and Hailey.
