"I would like to thank the Cardinal Newman administration for the opportunity to be its next Head Football Coach," Daniels said in a statement from Cardinal Newman High School. "I look forward to working with the great kids, faculty and staff at Cardinal Newman. As a lifelong resident of Palm Beach County I am aware of the great tradition that the school and football program have established. I am both fortunate and blessed to be given this wonderful opportunity. I look forward to coaching football at the same school as the great Sam Budnyk."

Daniels, who has facilitated over 200 college scholarships for student athletes, has coached over 20 players who have made it to the NFL, including Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett and former Miami Dolphins tight end Nick O’Leary.

Daniels takes over for Dan Burack, who stepped down as head coach earlier on Monday. He will still be a coach and teacher at Cardinal Newman High School.
