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 engaged to former Tennessee Tech women’s basketball three-year starter and guard Allison Price.
