Report: Brown has not said goodbye to Davis just yet
In light of a report that Texas head coach Mack Brown had dismissed offensive coordinator Greg Davis, Chuck Carlton of The Dallas Morning News writes that no decision has been made regarding the fate of the longtime Longhorns assistant.
ICONIs Texas head coach Mack Brown looking to make some changes on offense?
A source told the paper Thursday that Brown continues to evaluate the disappointing 5-7 campaign and that no dismissals are in line as of yet. Davis has been Brown’s offensive coordinator at Texas since his arrival in 1998.
Keep in mind that Davis has survived rumors of his demise before, as his firing was reported after the 2003 season. But then again, the Longhorns never really looked as out of sync offensively as they have throughout the 2010 season.
As Carlton points out, the domino effect of dismissing Davis would have a huge impact on the rest of the staff. Would running backs coach Major Applewhite supplant Davis as the coordinator? What would happen to tight ends coach Bruce Chambers, who has served as the recruiting coordinator?
Brown and Davis have coached together for 16 years dating back to their days at Tulane and North Carolina. But Texas isn’t going bowling for the first time in nearly 20 years, and the offense is one of the major reasons that the Longhorns will be home for the holidays.
