REPORT: Brad Davis Accepts O-Line Coach Job
A source told Sports Illustrated Thursday that East Carolina has filled its offensive line coach vacancy with James Madison co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Brad Davis. The opening was created when Brandon Jones left for California to accept the same position last month, shortly after Lincoln Riley left Greenville to become Oklahoma’s new offensive coordinator. Davis, who was an offensive lineman at Oklahoma from 1998-2003, spent five years with the Dukes after coaching Portland State’s front line for five years and coordinating its ground attack. He also served on FBS staffs at Texas A&M, where he earned his master’s in kinesiology and sports management in 2008, and at North Carolina. As a member of the Oklahoma scout team in 1999, Davis learned Mike Leach’s high-octane Air Raid offense, which mirrors the scheme that Leach-disciple Ruffin McNeill brought with him to ECU from Texas Tech.
