Report: Butch Davis Passes On FIUDecember 7th, 2012
The college football world was abuzz earlier this week with a Sports Illustrated report of Buccaneers covert defensive strategist/operative Butch Davis being a hot candidate for the vacant head coaching job at Florida International University.
Well, that chatter is dead. Per the Miami Herald, Davis is not interested.
It’ll be interesting to see if Davis’ big name is linked to other college openings. As Joe’s written before, Monte Kiffin is eagerly seeking a return to the NFL, and the Bucs could look to him if they sought another defensive advisor to replace Davis. Kiffin has Greg Schiano’s love and could actually work with Buccaneers hands-on, unlike Davis.
