Daniel Gwitt, the newly appointed head coach at Miami University and Executive Club Director for LOVB, brings a wealth of experience from his tenure as an assistant coach at Penn State, his alma mater. Having just completed his second season with the Nittany Lions, Gwitt played a pivotal role in guiding the team to consecutive trips to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2022 and 2023. His contributions were instrumental in securing top-10 recruiting classes in both years, including the nation’s #1 recruit, and fostering the development of seven All-Big Ten players and two AVCA All-Americans during his time at Penn State.

Before joining Penn State, Gwitt spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Indiana, where he significantly bolstered the team's defensive performance and helped secure the program's highest-ranked recruiting class. Additionally, Gwitt began his coaching career at Centenary College, where he served as head coach, earning the distinction of being the youngest Division I head coach in the country at the time.

Beyond collegiate coaching, Gwitt's expertise extends to successful stints as the director of operations and master coach for prominent volleyball clubs in Southern California, consistently leading teams to the Open Division for the Girls Junior National Championships and achieving top rankings in the Division 1 SCVA standings.

A native of Eden, New York, Gwitt graduated from Penn State in 2007 with a degree in communication arts and sciences. During his time as a member of the men's volleyball team, he contributed to clinching the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Championship and made a memorable trip to the NCAA Final Four under the guidance of current head coach Mark Pavlik.

Taking the helm at Miami University, Gwitt expressed his commitment to upholding the esteemed traditions established by former coach Condit while striving to propel the program back to greatness. With a strong belief in the values and representation of Miami, Gwitt is eager to assemble his staff and commence the journey towards continued success for the Miami Volleyball program. Dan is deeply committed to coaching and player development and is excited to combine his extensive knowledge and hands-on experience to foster success and excellence within the Miami University Volleyball program and in the community at 513 Volleyball Club.
