Is anyone else not surprised that Butch Davis wants to coach again? Did he ever really want to stop coaching?
Davis was never specifically targeted by the NCAA in all of the academic fraud stuff that has gone on at North Carolina, and now that he’s been away from coaching for almost a year now, he wants back in.
Davis told the AP that he would like to get back into coaching in the near future.
“I would love to think that the things we’ve accomplished over 37 years, that this one particular deal will not define me as a man nor as a coach,” Davis told the AP.
Davis is currently a special assistant to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, who was a former Davis assistant at Miami.
Davis also has the fact that the NCAA didn’t cite him in their investigation for any wrongdoing. Davis is due around $2.7 million from his contract since the firing from UNC wasn’t “for cause”.
Do you think Butch will land a NCAA job?
