San Jose State is searching for a new head coach after Dave Wojcik resigned on Monday. The Spartans were 32-90 under him.
Davis, who has been named SWAC Coach of the Year three times in his five full seasons at Texas Southern, led the Tigers to three NCAA Tournament appearances and one NIT berth, compiling a 99-69 record.
Before his stint at Texas Southern, Davis spent six seasons at UAB (2006-2012) leading the Blazers to four postseason tournament appearances.
Davis arguably experienced his best success at Indiana posting three 20-win seasons in six years, including guiding the Hoosiers to the Final Four in 2002.
After having a renaissance at Texas Southern, Davis has been tied to, or been rumored to be interested in, several openings across college basketball.
Davis, though, recently signed a contract extension to remain at Texas Southern through the 2022 season.
This would be a huge loss for TSU. I wish Davis the best even if he leaves. He has done a lot for TSU.
Why would you leave TSU for San Jose State? Crazy I think.
