"I'll try to bring a version of that with me," Daniel said. "We'll run a simple version of that by spreading the floor and shooting threes. We'll also be a smart team and play hard on both ends of the floor."
Daniel, who's also in his first season as a teacher at Hoover, has spent the first two months of the school year getting to know his new team.
"I didn't know much about them at first but we've been lifting weights, having open gym and playing in a Poca league on Sundays," Daniel said. "I'm starting to get familiar with the kids. We've got some kids playing football and some playing soccer, but once we have everyone together, we have a chance to be pretty good."
Hoover Athletic Director Jerry Legg hopes the Daniel can build a program and stick around long enough to enjoy it.
"Josh was a very good high school basketball player and had a good college career," Legg said. "We were looking for someone young to come in and take over and someone that will take the job, keep it for a while and build a program."
That's what Daniel hopes to do.
"I definitely hope to start building a program," Daniel said. "I know Hoover is not really known for basketball, so we want to keep the kids working hard in and out of the season and build a basketball culture here."
