Anderson began his professional coaching career at Parramatta, working his way up through to assistant coach to Brian Smith. It came as a surprise to many when Daniel was appointed as Warriors head coach beginning in 2001. Daniel met with immediate success with the Warriors taking them to the finals for the first time in his first season in charge in 2001 and then they went all the way to the grand final, losing to the Roosters ultimately. The was crowned minor premiers this season after the Bulldogs were stripped of the title due to huge salary cap breaches. 2002 saw Anderson awarded the Dally M coach of the year title. 2003 would see Anderson again lead the NZ Warriors into the finals and would also see him appointed as coach of the New Zealand Kiwis. By 2004 things had soured at the Warriors for Anderson and he eventually quit the club by round 11 after the NRL side had lost all but three games. Player power has since been blamed for the sharp decline in for by 2004.

2005 rolled around and Daniel had signed on to coach powerhouse club St Helens. Success followed immediately with the club winning the Challenge cup and the premiership in 2006. After many further successes with St Helens Daniel signed to coach his old club the Eels in 2008, leading them to the NRL grand final in 2009 after a completely dominant season. Br 2010 player power once again saw to it that Anderson quit his coaching assignment early. Daniel is not related to either of the Anderson brothers that played for the Warriors and Kiwis, Vinnie and Louis. Daniel was appointed NRL referees coach for the 2013 season and beyond.
