What if UNF had a football program...

Greg Davis

Offensive Coordinator - University of Texas


Davis' offensive approach would be a good fit in Florida. He likes athletic and mobile quarterbacks that can run the ball as well as they throw it. Florida seems to have more than its fair share of those.


I won't waste much dialog on this guy. He's already passed up two head coaching positions (he previously headed up Tulane where he was 14-31) - SMU and Minnesota - so maybe he's content being Mack Brown's O.C.?


Greg Davis' Bio:

Under his guidance, the Longhorns have has produced 10 of the top 11 passing seasons, 11 of the top 13 total yardage campaigns and the top nine scoring years in school history. Texas averaged 39.0 points per game in the last decade (2000-09), which ranked second nationally and first among BCS conference schools. The Horns averaged at least 35 ppg in nine of the 10 seasons, including three seasons of at least 40 ppg. In 2005, UT set a then-NCAA record with 652 total points and a school record by averaging 50.2 ppg.
