Brandt Danals will begin his first season as an Assistant Coach for the Warriors.
"We are pleased to have Brandt join our staff," stated Head Coach Al Grushkin. "His experience as a high school head coach should benefit our players, especially in the development area. He comes to us highly recommended by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants staff and he will be an excellent addition to our staff.”
Danals, a 2010 graduate of Ashland University, where he was a member of the men’s basketball team, joins the Warrior staff after spending the last two seasons as the Head Coach at Crestview High School, just outside of Ashland, Ohio. In his two seasons as Head Coach, four of his players were recognized as All-District selections, five as All-Conference selections and 14 players were named to the Conference All-Academic team, while achieving winning seasons.
Following his playing career at Ashland, Danals spent one season as a Volunteer Assistant at Ashland University under the schools’ All-time winningest coach, Roger Lyons. Danals has worked several NBA Development League tryouts, collegiate summer camps, and organized individual workouts for a wide range of players across the Midwest.
A native of Loudonville, Ohio, Danals had a great high school career at Loudonville High School, where he was a member of back-to-back State Final Four teams. He was an All Mid-Buckeye Conference selection as a senior.
