“We’re thrilled to have Danny back in the fold as a full-time assistant coach,” Coach Bennett said. “He was successful as a player here and added a ton of value as a student assistant coach during his final year at MU. I know he’s excited to hit the ground running and represent Marquette men’s soccer with pride.”
