Daley joined the Green Terror staff in 2009, bringing a wealth of football knowledge with him.
Now in his fourth year on staff as defensive coordinator, Dailey’s first year produced a defensive first-team all-conference selection for the first time since 2006. His defensive scheme put pressure on opposing quarterbacks game-in and game-out, recording 32 sacks.
Years two and three brought much of the same with six more all-conference selections, including a trio of first-team nods. His defense recorded 25 more sacks and picked off another 18 passes in 2010 before following that up with a 24-sack, nine-interception year in 2011.
Dailey came to McDaniel as a 19-year veteran of the Arena Football League (AFL), which suspended operation indefinitely prior to the 2009 season. While in the AFL, he compiled a record of 115-83 in his 12 years as a head coach.
Dailey spent seven years at the helm of the Firebirds organization that included leading Albany to the 1999 title. He also was named Coach of the Year that same season.
His final five seasons in the AFL were at the helm of the Colorado Crush, where he guided the squad owned by John Elway to the 2005 championship.
Dailey ranks fourth all-time in the AFL in games coached, fifth in overall wins and fifth in postseason victories.
Prior to his tenure with the indoor league, Dailey spent time in the college ranks at George Mason, Towson and Montgomery College.
