Daniel O'Hare

Assistant Coach

The 2023 season will be Daniel O’Hare’s first season as an assistant coach. During 2022, O’Hare served as a volunteer assistant coach under head coach Darren Ambrose.

Prior to his time at Vanderbilt, O’Hare was at Arkansas State where he spent five seasons as an assistant coach and graduate assistant with its women’s soccer program. He implemented a team-game model and strong culture of success there, as the Red Wolves claimed multiple Sun Belt Conference championships. Working closely with the goalkeepers, O’Hare helped three student-athletes earn Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year honors in his time with the school. As an assistant coach, he developed team and individual training programs for both in-season and out-of-season workouts while collaborating with student-athletes and staff to determine best practices. Off the field, O’Hare spent time working on film and analyzing training systems to deliver effective feedback to the goalkeepers.

Before his time with the Red Wolves, O’Hare spent two seasons as the director of goalkeeping for the McMinn Futbol Club in Athens, Tennessee. Overseas, O’Hare spent four years as the director of goalkeeping and assistant coach for the Wimbledon FC Regional Academy in Cork, Ireland.

O’Hare received a bachelor’s degree from Tennessee Wesleyan before earning his first master’s degree during his time at Arkansas State.
