Dexter Davis Meets with Bowden

Former Clemson star defensive back Dexter Davis has interviewed for an assistant coach's job with Tigers football coach Tommy Bowden, sources told CUTigers.com.<BR>

The meeting, described as "informal," took place Wednesday in Clemson, sources said.

No offer was extended, but it appears more likely that Davis, 34, will be with the football team in some capacity next season, even if it means as a graduate assistant, sources said.

The final decision on whether Davis is hired a full-time assistant or as a graduate assistant could hinge on what position the new defensive coordinator coaches. If the new coordinator coaches the secondary, which could include rovers and whips, then Davis will likely be hired as a graduate assistant.

However, if the new coordinator wants to coach just one position, but it linebackers, the secondary or rovers and whips, then Davis could be hired as a regular assistant.

Davis played seven seasons in the NFL after turning pro following his junior year in 1990, when was named as an All-ACC selection.

He has also coached at two colleges, Morgan State and Charleston Southern.

He served as defensive coordinator and special teams coach at Morgan State under former NFL star kickoff returner Stump Mitchell. Prior to this season, Davis served as secondary coach and special teams coordinator at Charleston Southern. He also helped out with rovers and whips.
