In order to round out her coaching staff, head coach Amanda Butler brought back a familiar face from her time at Florida in Daniel Barber.
Barber, a 2012 graduate from the University of Florida, served as the head manager for women’s basketball from 2011-12 and then went on to work as a graduate assistant while earning a Master’s Degree in Leadership Development.
Barber assisted Butler and her staff in scouting reports, player development and team travel. He was also responsible for conducting individual summer workouts with the team.
Following his time at Florida, Barber spent the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach at UNC Asheville, working primarily with the Bulldog guards. He assisted in recruiting, scouting, team academics and team-building activities, as well.
Most recently, Barber served as an assistant coach at Stetson from 2014-2018. The Hatters found their way to three postseason appearances and three 20+ win seasons during Barber’s time with the team, including the program’s first-ever ASUN regular season championship in 2016-17.
While working with the guards, Barber helped coach ASUN Player of the Year Brianti Saunders and ASUN Freshman of the Year McKenna Beach. Saunders finished her career as Stetson’s all-time leading scorer with 1,975 points.
