Butch Davis Hired As FIU Head Football Coach

Former Miami and North Carolina coach Butch Davis will be returning to the gridiron as he has accepted the head coaching position at Florida International.

Davis has been working as a college football studio analyst for ESPN since 2014; he told the company of his decision to return to coaching on Monday.

Davis agreed to a five-year contract with FIU. He will be introduced on Tuesday afternoon.

FIU has gone 3-3 under interim head coach Ron Cooper, who will remain coach through the final two games of the season. Cooper took the job after Ron Turner went 0-4 at the start of the season, leaving with a 10-30 record since he was hired in 2013.

Ironically enough, FIU’s executive director of sports and entertainment has a long history with Davis and used him as a consultant when he made the Ron Turner hire back in 2013. Garcia said he didn’t want Davis just as a consultant and got the coach to sign on and make the deal.

Davis coached six seasons with the Miami Hurricanes before leaving to work for the Cleveland Browns. He is credited with helping build the legendary 2001 Hurricanes’ National Championship team, which was then under head coach Larry Coker.

After his time with the Browns, Davis returned to the college football scene to coach the North Carolina Tar Heels. He spent four seasons there before getting fired at the start of the 2011 season while the school dealt with allegations of improper benefits and academic misconduct.

Davis will have to put in a lot of work to revamp the FIU Panthers football team.
