Anderson University graduate and former men's golfer Tyler Daniels has been named the head coach of the men's golf team for the 2012-13 season, replacing longtime coach Paul Gray.

"I'm very honored to have been named the men's and women's golf coach for Anderson University," said Daniels. "This school and its golf program really mean a lot to me, and I look forward to helping them both continue to succeed."

Daniels had been an assistant coach under Gray for the last four years and is also the head coach of the women's golf team as well after taking over for Marcie Taylor.

"I know I've got some big shoes to fill following Coach Taylor and Coach Gray, but I'm very excited to build upon the foundations they laid in the program," said Daniels.

He was a two-year letterwinner on the men's golf team for the Ravens and was All-Conference at the 2009 HCAC Championships and the runner-up at the 2008 HCAC Championships. He was also All-Conference in men's golf at Sinclair Community College in 2007.

He is currently the head golf pro at Killbuck Golf Course in Anderson.

Daniels earned his bachelor's degree in history from Anderson in 2009 and is currently working on his MBA at Anderson. He graduated from Northmont High School in Clayton, Ohio, where he played on the baseball and men's golf teams.

Gray coached the Ravens for 22 seasons before his retirement this spring, winning three Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championships (1992, 2000-01).
