Eric Daniels Named Assistant Coach for Utah State Men's Basketball

Utah State head men's basketball coach Jerrod Calhoun announced on Thursday the hiring of Eric Daniels as an assistant coach. Daniels has 15 years of collegiate coaching experience, including 10 years in the state of Utah.

“When we arrived in Logan, we wanted to make sure we attacked the state of Utah in recruiting and Eric will help lead that charge,” Calhoun said. “He has worked with some great coaches at Weber State and Utah Valley and has been tremendous thus far here. He is a great addition to our staff and will work on the offensive side of the floor.”

Daniels joins the Utah State staff after spending the past five seasons as an assistant at Weber State. During his time there, he helped guide the Wildcats to winning seasons and top-four finishes in the Big Sky Conference each of the past four years.

“I could not be more excited to be joining coach Calhoun and the men’s basketball program at Utah State,” Daniels said. “Being from the state of Utah, I know the tradition here at Utah State is very rich, and I am humbled and honored to be part of it.

“I look forward to working with coach Calhoun and the staff as we strive for championships and continued success on and off the court. Developing players and young men is one thing I truly value in this profession and I’m looking forward to continuing that here in Logan.”
