Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio - The University of Rio Grande didn't have to look very far to find a new head coach for its women's soccer program.
    The school has announced the hiring of long-time men's soccer assistant coach Tony Daniels to lead the RedStorm women.
    Daniels replaces former head coach Callum Morris, who stepped down late in the 2015 regular season to pursue other career opportunities.
    The RedStorm, who posted an 8-10 record last fall following a loss to Point Park in the semifinal round of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament, finished the season with assistant coach Craig Davies at the helm.
    "I'm excited and very much looking forward to the opportunity," Daniels said. "I think it's a good situation - not only for myself, but the University and for both of our soccer programs. I've been an assistant with the men's team for the past 25 years and I'd like to think I've played some kind of role in the success we've enjoyed. I think the girls program can be taken to that level, but it's going to take some work. A strong foundation has already been laid, though, and I'm ready to start working with the girls."
