Returning for his second year as a full-time assistant coach and third overall year as a member of the Tennessee Tech men's basketball coaching staff is former Golden Eagle 3-point specialist Frank Davis.
Just two years after returning to his alma mater as the Director
of Basketball Operations, Davis will look to help the Tech squad
build off a resurgent 2013-14 season in which the team returned to
Ohio Valley Conference Tournament action, defeating SIUE in the
first round and finishing the year with a 17-16 record.
A standout ball player and graduate in the class of 2010 with a degree in exercise science and physical wellness, Davis began his transition from player to coach at Piedmont College during the 2010-11 season, before taking a graduate assistant coaching position at Lee University during 2011-12.
Davis finished out his career at Tech at the top of the all-time 3-point shooting list, having netted 251 buckets from downtown during his 2006-2010 career. He logged two seasons with a 3-point shooting accuracy over 40 percent (42.9 percent in 2008-09 and 44.4 percent in 2009-10) and is No. 2 on the Golden Eagle list of career games played with 125.
A standout in the classroom as well, Davis was named four times to the OVC Commissioner's Honor Roll while earning a spot in Tech's 1,000-point club with 1,118 career points.
Davis is a native of Gainesville, Ga., and completed his master's degree in education at Tennessee Tech in 2013. He is married to the former Allison Price, who started three years at guard for the Golden Eagle women's basketball team.
