Daly was named Roger Cardinal Mahony.[5]

On September 16, 2013, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, who is also the President and Chancellor of Saint Patrick's Seminary, named Bishop Daly as the interim President/Rector of the seminary.[6] This is the first time in the history of the seminary that the rector has not been a member of the Society of St. Sulpice.[7] Bishop Daly, who is also on the seminary's board of directors, will serve as rector until a qualified Suplican candidate can be found, while continuing his duties in the Diocese of San Jose.[6]
