Source: Rob Ambrose hires defensive coordinator, cornerbacks coach

Rob Ambrose has hired Eric Daniels to serve as Towson's defensive coordinator and Derrius Bell as the club's cornerbacks coach, source told FootballScoop on Monday.

Daniels was previously the defensive coordinator at Briar Cliff University, an NAIA school in Sioux City, Iowa. Bell recently completed his first season as the associate head coach and defensive backs coach at Holmes Community College in Goodman, Miss.

With the Daniels hiring, source said current defensive coordinator Lyndon Johnson will remain on staff in a different capacity.

Daniels and Bell both hail from the Dallas area and coached together on June Jones' SMU staff in 2014. Daniels played at Baylor and Hardin-Simmons University and coached at HSU, Angelo State and Oklahoma Panhandle State in addition to SMU. Bell also spent time on the UTEP staff after playing and coaching at SMU.
