Defensive Coaching Staff

Mike Dailey
Defensive Coordinator

Daley joined the Green Terror staff in 2009, bringing a wealth of football knowledge with him.

Now in his fourth year on staff as defensive coordinator, Dailey’s first year produced a defensive first-team all-conference selection for the first time since 2006. His defensive scheme put pressure on opposing quarterbacks game-in and game-out, recording 32 sacks.

Years two and three brought much of the same with six more all-conference selections, including a trio of first-team nods. His defense recorded 25 more sacks and picked off another 18 passes in 2010 before following that up with a 24-sack, nine-interception year in 2011.

Dailey came to McDaniel as a 19-year veteran of the Arena Football League (AFL), which suspended operation indefinitely prior to the 2009 season. While in the AFL, he compiled a record of 115-83 in his 12 years as a head coach.

Dailey spent seven years at the helm of the Firebirds organization that included leading Albany to the 1999 title. He also was named Coach of the Year that same season.

His final five seasons in the AFL were at the helm of the Colorado Crush, where he guided the squad owned by John Elway to the 2005 championship.

Dailey ranks fourth all-time in the AFL in games coached, fifth in overall wins and fifth in postseason victories.

Prior to his tenure with the indoor league, Dailey spent time in the college ranks at George Mason, Towson and Montgomery College.

Greg Fuhrman
Defensive Line

Fuhrman returned to the Hill for his third stint as a coach with the Green Terror in 2003. In his nine seasons since, he has coached 10 All-CC linemen.

His first tour came in 1992 and 1993 when Fuhrman handled the same position group he is presently charged with.

After coaching several seasons of high school ball, Fuhrman returned for the 2000 season and worked primarily with the special teams.

A 1983 graduate of Frostburg, Fuhrman started at defensive end for two seasons before beginning his coaching career with the Bobcats.

The six-year high school head coach began his teaching career more than 20 years ago at Calvert High School. He currently teaches social studies at Franklin High School in Baltimore County.

Earl Hoffman

Hoffman joins the Green Terror staff as safeties coach in 2012, brining with him a lifelong experience and knowledge of football and sports, in general.

Playing the position since he was young, Hoffman was a two-year varsity starting quarterback in high school and was elected captain as a senior. He was named first-team all-county by the Washington Post and P.G. Journal.

He continued his signal-calling career in college that began with a year at the University of Maryland, where he was freshman quarterback. From there, he spent two years at Montgomery College as the starting quarterback, earning All-America, NJCAA and CAC Player of Year honors in 1984. He spent the following season as the starting quarterback at West Liberty State College and rounded out his career under center at Salisbury State in 1986, leading the Sea Gulls to a Division III runner-up finish.

Since college, Hoffman has been a physical education and health teacher in the Montgomery County Public School system. He has coached several sports during his tenure, including indoor and outdoor track and field, softball and golf.

He has also spent time coaching football along the way, including at Montgomery College (quarterbacks/assistant offensive coordinator, 1986), Paint Branch High School (special teams coordinator, 1989-90; offensive coordinator, 1991-92) and George Mason University (quarterbacks coach/assistant offensive coordinator/special teams coordinator/team conditioning and flexibility coordinator, 1992-94; offensive coordinator, 1994-95).

He most recently spent time the 1996 season as the quarterbacks coach with the Albany Firebirds of the Arena Football League with current McDaniel defensive coordinator Mike Dailey.

Hoffman took a hiatus from coaching in 1996 to spend more time with his wife, Lynn, and two young daughters, Amanda and Kelsey. Both of his daughters are now in college.

Matt Hutchings

Hutchings enters his second season on the Green Terror staff after serving the previous three seasons as the linebackers coach at Guilford.

In his first season as linebackers coach at McDaniel, Mike Cousar was tabbed to the all-conference team after ranking second on the team in tackles.

In 2012, Hutchings will oversee the team's community service efforts as well as serving as assistant special teams coordinator.

While working with the Quakers, he coached a pair of All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference linebackers, including Richard Paul, who finished the 2009 season ranked third in Division III in total tackles.

Hutchings oversaw the offensive scout team to prepare the first-team defense at practices. He was also the defensive video coordinator, breaking down all defensive video and half of the special teams film duties.

In addition to serving as linebackers coach, Hutchings was also integral in the special teams, including a punt team that did not have a kick blocked in 2009.

A four-year letterwinner at NAIA University of Virginia’s College at Wise, the inside/outside linebacker and defensive end was named honorable mention All-American by Don Hanson at defensive end in 2006.

Hutchings graduated from UVa-Wise in 2007 with a degree in health and physical education.

In the summer prior to his arrival on the Hill, Hutchings was married to Carol, a teacher and volleyball coach, in Richmond, Va.

Chris Kolb

Kolb enters his second season on the Green Terror staff after a successful tenure in the McDaniel defensive backfield.

A captain in 2010, Kolb earned first-team All-Centennial Conference (CC) honors and second-team all-region honors after leading the squad with a CC-best eight interceptions. He also broke up 10 more passes for a conference-leading 18 passes defended. As a senior, he added 45 tackles, a blocked kick and returned two PATs for defensive points. A quarterback during his days at nearby Francis Scott Key High School, he also successfully executed four fake punts over the course of the season, passing twice for 46 yards and running two more times for 31 net yards.

Kolb played three seasons for the Green Terror at defensive back, making 130 stops and 14 interceptions.

He graduated in May 2011 with a degree in history.
