COACHING EXPERIENCE

  • Begins the eighth year of his third stint on Montezuma Mesa. For the seventh consecutive year, he will work with the wide receivers after coaching the Aztec running backs in 2005.

  • In 2012, mentored a young receiving corps that entered the season with just four total career catches. Sophomores Colin Lockett, a converted defensive back, and Dylan Denso, a walk-on, combined to log 107 receptions for 1,604 yards and 11 scores. Lockett was also tabbed to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List.

  • Was also in charge of the SDSU special teams unit a year ago that featured two-time first-team all-league punter Brian Stahovich and logged two kick returns for touchdowns.

  • Coached one of the best 1-2 receiver tandems in the nation in 2011, as both Vincent Brown and DeMarco Sampson were named first-team all-Mountain West and were selected in the NFL Draft. The pair combined for 2,572 yards and 18 touchdowns, while tallying 12, 100-yard receiving efforts.

  • In 2010, Brown and Sampson each eclipsed the 1,000-yard receiving mark, becoming the first Aztecs to do so in the same campaign since another McDaniels' coached duo, J.R. Tolver and Kassim Osgood in 2002.

  • Brown was one of just five non-seniors to be named a semifinalist for the 2009 Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top receiver.

  • Tutored a pair of 2008 NFL Draft picks in wideouts Chaz Schilens (Oakland Raiders) and Brett Swain (Green Bay Packers). Swain was a second team all-conference pick in 2007, finishing second in the league in receiving yards per contest (79.6). Schilens ended his career with three straight 100-yard receiving games and ranked No. 1 in the Mountain West in 2007 in receiving yards in league outings (100.7 ypg.).

  • Returned to SDSU in 2005, after a two-year stay on Mike Riley's staff at Oregon State, which saw the Beavers earn invitations to two straight postseason bowl games.

  • From 1994-96, coached the special teams and secondary at SDSU, and in 2002, he was the receivers and special teams coach. That season, Aztec wideouts J.R. Tolver and Kassim Osgood set NCAA single-season records for receptions and receiving yards by two teammates.

  • Prior to 2002, was on the staff at California, coaching the Golden Bear special teams and assisting with the defensive backs.

  • Served as a coach and administrator with the Washington Redskins from 1998 to 2000. Was the Redskins special teams coach for three seasons under head coach Norv Turner.

  • NFL background also includes a one-year stint as the wide receivers coach for the Phoenix Cardinals (1993) and a stop with the Philadelphia Eagles as a pro scout.

  • Began his coaching career at Hartnell College in Salinas, Calif., before joining the San Diego Chargers in 1989 as assistant special teams coach. He remained with the Chargers until he returned to his alma mater, Cal Poly, as special teams and secondary coach in 1992.

    PLAYING EXPERIENCE
  • Cornerback on Cal Poly's 1980 NCAA Division II National Championship football team. Honorable mention All-American as a senior, a two-time team captain and finished his career with 13 career interceptions. Inducted into the Cal Poly Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002.

  • Spent four years in the NFL with the Giants and Redskins, where he was a part of a Super Bowl championship team in 1983.
