Danka Danicic
Position: Assistant Coach
Alma Mater: Washington
Graduating Year: 2006

Former Washington standout Danka Danicic enters her second season as an assistant coach for the UTSA volleyball program in 2015.

In her first season at UTSA, Danicic worked with passers on serve receive and was also in charge of the team's defense. The Roadrunners finished second in the league in digs per set (15.93) and were in the middle of the pack in blocks with 2.17 per frame.

With the aid of Danicic, the Roadrunners defense proved to be on key early in the season, as UTSA picked up the program's first-ever win over Texas A&M in a five-set thriller.

Prior to heading to the states, Danicic spent the previous six years teaching high school English in her native Serbia at Mionica High School and coaching a club team along with assisting the varsity squad. 

The native of Ljig, Serbia, came to Washington in 2002 after competing for three club teams, including Oblic in Belgrade, Serbia, and being named the team Most Valuable Player for Spartak in 1997-98.

The defensive specialist was a two-time honorable mention Pac-10 All-Academic selection while playing in 118 matches and 375 sets. As a senior, she averaged 2.25 digs and 0.24 service aces per set, as the Huskies finished the 2005 campaign with a 32-1 record and the school’s first-ever NCAA Championship. During her four-year career, Washington advanced to four NCAA Tournaments and compiled a record of 103-24.

Current UTSA assistant coach Pat Stangle was an assistant coach at Washington during Danicic’s first two seasons in Seattle.

After graduating from Washington in 2006 with an English literature degree, Danicic further pursued her studies as a graduate assistant at UTEP. While in El Paso, she earned a master’s degree in higher education/administration and leadership while working with the Miners from 2006-08.
