Nick Danielson was named Wyoming's tight ends and H-backs coach in February 2013 after serving as an offensive graduate assistant for Wyoming for the 2012 season. He took over as tight ends coach during 2013 spring drills.
Among Danielson's duties for the Cowboys in 2012 were: signaling plays on game days; working with the quarterbacks during individual drills; preparing scouting reports; video breakdown; helping coordinate scout teams during practices; and playbook management.
He graduated from Occidental College in Los Angeles, Calif., in May of 2011 with a bachelor's degree in sociology. Danielson was a three-year starter at center at Occidental, and was a three-time All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) selection.
After graduation, Danielson played and coached for the Arlanda Jets in Märsta, Sweden from May to September of 2011. The Arlanda Jets play in the highest division of Swedish football. He also helped coach the Jets U11, U13 and U15 junior teams, and conducted several youth camps around Sweden to introduce the sport of American football.
From February to May 2012, Danielson was an assistant offensive line coach at the University of Puget Sound before joining the Wyoming football program as a graduate assistant in the summer of 2012.
A native of Snohomish, Wash., Danielson played his high school football at Snohomish Senior High School where he earned All-State honors and was selected to play in the East vs. West All-Star game.
"Nick (Danielson) did an outstanding job for us last year as an offensive graduate assistant," said Christensen. "He is a bright, young coach who I'm happy to be able to add to our full-time staff."
Danielson will recruit his home state of Washington for the Cowboys.
