“Coach Davis informed me late this afternoon that he was going to accept the head coaching position at Detroit Mercy,” said Dr. Charles McClelland, vice president for intercollegiate athletics at TSU, in an interview with FOX 26 Sports.
“He’s done a tremendous job at Texas Southern University. We owe him a great debt of gratitude for all that he’s done. I know he’s going to do well there. It’s going to be a huge loss for Texas Southern.”
Davis had been at TSU for the past six seasons where he has won four SWAC titles. He has also been the head coach at Indiana (2000-2006), and UAB (2006-2012). In 18 seasons as a D1 head coach, he has amassed a 352-241 record.
An official announcement is expected shortly.
