He beat out former Fever coach Dan Whitsett and Wymong Cavalry coach Dan Majayjuk for the job.   Davis wasn't on GM Randy Schillinger's original list of candidates. but recently was recommended by the league office.
It was late in the process," said Davis. "Jerry Kurz, the league executive director, called me personally. He said it would be a good fit for me personally.  I wound up becoming very comfortable with Randy, liked what I was hearing.  I liked how I felt about this process and went from there."
Davis also coached 15 years in college and pro football (NFL Europe). He spent last year as a high school coach in Oklahoma.
