NWAC HEADLINES

Whatcom CC hires Danny Day as Director of Athletics and Recreation

BELLINGHAM -- Danny comes to Whatcom following five years at Corban University. Since he started at Corban in 2014, he served as a member of the Warrior Athletics’ leadership team. Since February of 2018, Danny has served as an Assistant Athletic Director for the Warriors.

During the interim period in 2018, Danny helped hire Corban’s new Athletic Director and new head men’s and women’s basketball coaches. In addition, he served as a member of the hiring committee that brought the first-ever men’s wrestling coach to Corban to start the program.

Moreover, Danny’s role expanded to take on all external relations within the Salem community for the athletic department, as well as overseeing the gym and Intramural programs.

During his time at Corban, Danny garnered numerous sports information awards at both the conference and national levels while helping elevate Corban Warrior teams to new heights.

At the 2017 CoSIDA Convention, Danny was voted onto the NAIA-SIDA Board of Directors, and then in 2018, he was voted as the NAIA Sports Information Director of the Year for his outstanding work in the field of athletic communications, becoming Corban’s first-ever individual to receive this award.

At Corban, Danny was honored by his peers in the Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC) twice, voted the CCC Sports Information Director of the Year during both the 2015-16 and 2017-18 school years. The NAIA has also honored Day, with CorbanWarriors.com being named the No. 1 athletic website in the NAIA for the 2015-16 school year.

Since Danny took over at Corban, the Warriors’ athletic website is the only website in the NAIA to be ranked in the top-six during each of the last four years.

On top of having one of the best websites in the NAIA, Corban was also honored in 2017 with the No. 1-ranked promotional video in the entire NAIA, one of a variety of Warrior videos that has received recognition on a national level.

Prior to Corban, Danny worked for six years in the Sports Information Department at the University of Redlands, where he earned both his Masters and Bachelor’s degrees.

On top of the collegiate realm, Day has worked with the Portland Timbers U23 soccer team and ESPN Radio in Portland.

He and his wife Tori have one daughter named Payton.
