Daniel Magnusson


National Coach

Daniel joins the JJVA family after spending the last two years coaching at the NCAA Division I level. He coached at South Florida in 2019, primarily focused on video breakdown, scouting and game preparation for opponents, as well as managing the team’s international recruiting efforts.

While at UNCW, Daniel worked with both beach and indoor teams during their 2018 seasons. The indoor team returned to the Colonial Athletic Association tournament for the first time since winning the tournament in 2015. UNCW won a pair of in-season tournaments and stunned eventual conference champion Hofstra and defending champion James Madison. The beach team finished 12-16 against a schedule heavy with top-10 opponents. The pairing of Nicole Lott and Maddy Kline was selected to compete at the Bridgestone USA Collegiate Beach Volleyball Championships in Hermosa Beach, Calif. Lott and Kline went 2-2 during the tournament.

Daniel has extensive international coaching experience, primarily in his home country of Sweden, where he has coached professionally for over 11 years. Daniel served as an assistant coach for Sweden’s Junior National team in 2017, earning a silver medal at the Northern European Volleyball u19 Championships in Kettering, England. From 2014-17, he was the head coach of the Women’s A-Team for the Gislaved Volleybollklub, which competed in the Elite Series. He began his coaching career with his home club, Ljungby Volleybollklubb in 2009, and recently led the team on their first international trip to compete at the European Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia in 2018.

He graduated in 2005 from Sunnebogymnasiet in Ljungby, Sweden and later earned his Masters in Education from Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden, in 2011.
