Danielle Glosson | Pitching Coach
Danielle Glosson was named the pitching coach for the Campbell squad in August of 2018.
Glosson comes to Campbell most recently from High Point University where she served as the Director of Development for Events. In her role for the Panthers, she headed up preparation and execution of Panther Club events – High Point’s athletic booster club.
Before Glosson’s one year stint at High Point, the Winston-Salem native served as an assistant coach and eventual associate head coach at Western Carolina. In her role with the Catamounts she oversaw multiple facets of the team but primarily worked with the pitching staff and outfielders.
At WCU she led the team to a notable win over Virginia Tech and coached the first Western Carolina freshman pitcher to surpass 100 strikeouts in a season. She also coached the Catamounts’ all-time leader in strikeouts (740) and coached one of her players to a perfect game – one of only three thrown in the country during the 2016 season.
Glosson also helped Catamount players to success in the classroom and led the 2016-17 team to a National Fastpitch College Association (NFCA) Division I All-Academic Team honor with a nation leading 3.673 team GPA.
Prior to her coaching career, Danielle played Division I softball at Southern Illinois University. During her four years, Glosson was named the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) pitcher of the year in 2010 in route to a regular season championship. During her senior season, she was named a Lowe’s Senior Class Award Finalist. The award recognizes student-athletes in four different areas including community, classroom, character, and competition.
Matt Stewart | Assistant Coach
Matt Stewart was added to the Campbell softball coaching staff as an assistant coach in July.
Stewart will serve primarily as Campbell's hitting coach and will also coach outfielders. He comes to Buies Creek after a two-year stint at South Carolina as a volunteer assistant coach.
"I'm very excited to have Matt join our staff," McDonald said. "He brings high levels of experience and knowledge from South Carolina. His energy and passion for the game will be a huge asset to our program. Matt's main responsibility will be to run our offense and I have no doubt he will do a great job."
Stewart helped guide the Gamecocks to a 49-17 record, a No. 9 NCAA National Seed and its first Super Regional appearance in 11 years. Under head coach Beverly Smith, he was part of a coaching staff that was named the 2018 Southeast Region Coaching Staff of the Year by the NFCA.
At South Carolina, Stewart helped coach a defense that posted a .984 fielding percentage in conference play to lead the SEC. He also assisted in developing USC hitters who posted a program record 66 home runs which was another SEC best.
A two-time graduate of the University of Florida, Stewart earned a bachelor's degree and master's degree from UF in sport management. He spent three seasons on the Florida softball staff serving as a manager for two NCAA Championship teams. In that role, he aided players and coaches in workouts and practices while also helping with scouting reports. He was promoted to graduate assistant for the 2016 season as his responsibilities expanded to formulating practice plans, creating scouting reports and co-coordinating the logistics of a 140-participant camp.
This will be the second time Stewart and McDonald have worked alongside each other with the first coming during their stints at Florida as McDonald was an assistant coach for the Gators for two seasons.
