Danny Byrne celebrates his first season as Head Coach

Danny Byrne and the Manchester Giants Basketball team.

“This is my first season as Head Coach for the Manchester Giants’ 1st team, having previously been Head Coach for the Reserve team.” 

“Since joining the 1st Team, I have been able to incorporate my coaching skills within the taught elements of the Degree programme, bringing a richer element of learning for the students, many of whom have been to watch a live match at the stadium and regularly watch games on the BBC and Freesports TV.”

“Sharing my experiences of being an elite sports coach, including tactical information, has given extra value and insight to my students as they study the Elite Sports Module in the  3rd year of the BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching and Performance Degree programme.” 

“As part of my role as Head Coach, I appear on the BBC where I am filmed in the run up to each match and share my opinion on expectations.  The first time I was interviewed by reporters was very daunting.”

“In addition to the Coaching elements I am also a scout for the team and regularly spend time looking for talented players to join then team. It is a privilege to be able to share my experiences with the students on the BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching and Performance degree programme.”
