Danny Nee (born June 18, 1945) was most recently the head men's basketball coach at the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Nee served as head coach of the Ohio Bobcats men's basketball team for seven years (1980–1986), where he helped rebuild the program which had suffered through several losing seasons, and led the team to two MAC Tournament titles (1983 and 1985), two NCAA Tournament appearances (1983 and 1985), and one National Invitation Tournament appearance (1986).
University of Nebraska
Following Nee's tenure at Ohio, he became the coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 1986 to 2000. Nee took a historically lackluster Husker program to the next level, leading Nebraska to five NCAA Tournament appearances from 1991–1994 and in 1998. They won the Big Eight Tournament Championship in 1994. His 1996 squad won the NIT Championship. Nee was fired in 2000 by then athletic director Bill Byrne. Nee has since been inducted into the Hall of Fame at the University of Nebraska and still holds the record for most wins in school history.
After Nebraska, Nee went to Robert Morris University for the 2000-2001 season. In the spring of 2001, he was named head coach of Duquesne University's Duquesne Dukes. Nee officially resigned as head coach after the season's final game on March 4, 2006.
United States Merchant Marine Academy
On October 4, 2010, Nee was named head men's basketball coach at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. The Mariners compiled a 52-51 overall record, 28-28 in the Landmark Conference, in Nee's four seasons at the Academy. He was placed on administrative leave in January 2014 following an "incident" that involved the "well-being" of students  and resigned in April 2014.
