Dan Daniel, a UNC alum and former Defensive Coordinator for the World Bowl Champion Hamburg Sea Devils will become a temporary defensive assistant at Northern Colorado this season. Daniel had received offers to coach at UNC during the off-season of NFL Europe, but did not want to spend so much time away from his family in Texas. However NFL Europe folded during this off-season, so he took some time to come back to his alma mater. He has a three month contract with the Bears which expires in November. Daniel should bring a voice of experience to a young Bears coaching staff as in addition to his time in NFL Europe, Daniel has coached for the Canadian Football League, the Kansas City Chiefs and Wyoming, Houston and Navy.
