When former General Manager Matthew Cooley decided to step down to pursue other interests the Rush were left with a big hole to fill, luckily for them the answer was already located in their house.
"We were super lucky from day one to have somebody like Danny involved with our organization. He stepped up big in year one taking over as defensive coordinator leading us to a championship. With his football and business knowledge and college background we are more than excited to have him lead our team from the front office as General Manager." - Brandon Tate

As the new General Manager, Danny is taking the Rush forward into the future with a vision for growth and community support. This job is a literal dream for him and he’s working hard to bring back the quality of professional indoor football the Tri-Cities knows, loves, and deserves.
