Beginning his third season with the Razorbacks, Jeff Daniels assumed the role of Director of Operations for the Arkansas men’s basketball program prior to the 2011-12 season. Arriving at Arkansas from Missouri, where he spent five years on head coach Mike Anderson’s staff, Daniels is a veteran of the game. 

In his duties with the Razorbacks, Daniels is tasked with team travel, facility scheduling, the men’s basketball budget and overseeing the administration of Mike Anderson’s Razorback camps. 

Daniels has been with Anderson for the past eight years, one at Alabama-Birmingham, five at Missouri and the last two at Arkansas. Over his eight years on Anderson’s staff, he has been a part of seven winning campaigns, four 20-win seasons and four NCAA Tournament appearances, highlighted by a 31-win season and run to the Elite Eight in 2009 at Missouri.

He joined his longtime friend at the Division I level after a 10-year coaching career at Montevallo and Division II Valdosta State. His coaching career at his alma mater, Montevallo, began in 1995 when he was named the program’s fifth head coach. His teams were well known for their defensive prowess and he guided the Falcons to steady improvements throughout his tenure. He was named the Gulf South Conference Coach of the Year in 2002 before accepting a position as associate head coach at Valdosta State in 2003. 

In two seasons with Valdosta State, the Blazers went 43-13, won a Gulf South Conference championship and ranked as high as No. 3 in the nation. Daniels defensive mindset was instilled in the Blazers arsenal and Valdosta State ranked No. 1 in the nation in field goal percentage defense each of his two years with the program. 

Daniels’ coaching career began as a graduate assistant coach at Montevallo. He spent two years as a graduate assistant before accepting the full-time assistant position in 1986 on Rob Spivery’s staff, helping guide the Falcons to its most successful stint in the program’s history. Daniels first met Anderson during his junior college playing days as the two began their post-high school careers at Jefferson State Community College in 1979-80. The teammates reached the National Junior College Athletic Association’s national title game, losing to a Nolan Richardson coached Western Texas team. 

Following his junior college days, Daniels began a two-year playing career at Montevallo. Daniels was awarded the Dean’s Trophy for scholastic achievement as a junior and was named a captain prior to his senior campaign. 

A native of Birmingham, Ala., Daniels attended Huffman High School. He and his wife, Robbie, have two children, son Andrew (17) and daughter, Makenzie (13).
