Coach Daryl Steele was a very BIG part of GreensboroSports.com and we had interviewed him many times over the years on our shows at Shane’s Rib Shack and KickBack Jack’s….

Coach Steele always had a big smile on his face and he had tons of energy…

We will miss Coach Steele and we feel it is way too early for him to be leaving us, GONE due to heart attack, at age 44 years old is what we have….

What we don’t have is Coach Daryl Steele and he will be missed…

    I know our Heavenly Father is in control and right now the Northeast family needs strength and encouragement to move forward as we have been stricken with the second loss of a member of the Ram family. I personally would like to thank the family of Coach Steele and the Praylor family for allowing these two men to touch so many lives. Ram Nation stay strong. God bless you all!

    To all at Northeast. The Ram Family has been dealt a huge blow. What a loss. A kind man who loved and was loved by all his students. Rest in Peace Coach Steele.

    Check out this interview with Coach Steele after his Lady Rams of Northeast Guilford just knocked off previously Unbeaten Western Alamance last season, at Northeast Guilford HS…

    One of his best wins in his coaching career….NEG team played like Champions on this night and Coach Steele was feeling like his girls were the “Rams of Steele” on this special night…

    Also lots of respect with Coach Steele and all of his fellow coaches around the area and county…He really thought a lot of Coach Kim Furlough and the job she has done at Northern Guilford High School…Lots of respect between those two Mid-State Conference coaches….

  • Coach McNeil said,

    I would like to send my condolences to the Steele and Northeast Women’s Basketball Family. I did not know Coach Steele on a personal level but as a coaching colleague he was a true professional, competitor and teacher. Every interaction that I had with him was positive and uplifting. The coaching community has truly lost a great one in Coach Steele of Northeast Guilford. The passion he had for the game, the passion he had for his players and the passion he had for young people speaks volumes to his body of work. A true soldier of the game of basketball! Rest In Heaven Coach Steele…we are grateful for your work in the community of basketball and the lives of young people. God Bless!

    Coach McNeil and the Lady Panther Basketball Family!

    Sharing a broadcast booth or a spot in the stands with Daryl and Kris when they were doing a game I covered was always fun. Daryl knew the game and cared deeply about the kids. He will be missed by a lot of people. Prayers to his family.

  • Andy Durham said,

    We received a couple of more notes in on Coach Steele this morning and the final word was he died on Sunday morning and not late Saturday night….

    Coach Steele also was 44 years old and would have turned 45 in November of this year…Not 47 years as previously reported and the changes have been made to reflect this in the post….

    I had only seen Coach Steele on the sidelines. I know how important he was to many students and parents at NEHS. It is hard to find a committed head coach of women’s athletics. He was committed to those female athletes and for that he had my admiration. Condolences to all the RAM family.

  • Coach Johnson said,

    Very sad to hear about Coach Steele and would like to offer condolences to his family.
    Enjoyed talking to Coach Steele throughout the years and had just spoken to him a few weeks ago at the Greensboro clinic.
    He loved coaching and it showed in his enthusiasm for the game.
    He will be missed by all who knew him.

    Having known Coach Steele during my coaching days at NE, I found him to be a great guy who loved what he was doing. He was always a pleasure to talk to. Our common bond was that we both love coaching kids. He will be missed as a coach, educator and friend.
