            === Matt Daniel leaves Central Arkansas for Marshall ===
 
 Huntington, WV (Sports Network) - Marshall University has named Matt Daniel as
 its new head women's basketball coach.
 
 Daniel  takes over  for  Royce  Chadwick, who  resigned  last  month after  11
 seasons.
 
 The  35-year-old Daniel  spent  the  past four  seasons  as  the head  women's
 basketball  coach  at Central Arkansas,  compiling a 72-50 record. During that
 time,  he  took the Sugar Bears  from a Division  II program to the Division I
 level, including a Southland Conference championship. He also was named as the
 2010 and 2012 Southland Coach of the Year.
 
 "My  wife  and I are ecstatic  to be back  in Huntington," said Daniel. "I was
 recruited here as a player by coach (Billy) Donovan and I think that his style
 of  play  fits my style  of play. We  will play a  style of basketball that is
 entertaining and fast paced. I think it's more fun to coach, officiate, watch,
 and  play  against.  We  flipped  the  program  at  Central  Arkansas  into  a
 championship  program and a prominent program nationally. We will come and try
 to do the same at Marshall."
