Could Butch Davis resurface at Florida International?


Hmmm. This could be interesting. Reports say that Butch Davis may be the next head coach at Florida International University.

And yes, we know, we said we wouldn't do "Stories" about "Rumored" candidates for college football jobs. But this struck us as a bit of a surprise considering Jones's track record.

He would replace the departed Mario Cristobal, who just one year after being a "Hot" coaching candidate, finds himself unemployed after a 3-9 season.

Davis would be a somewhat controversial hire, but does apparently have ties to the schools athletic director Pete Garcia.

Check out the full story from the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel RIGHT HERE

You'll recall Davis left a huge academic and athletic scandal in his wake after 4-years as the coach at North Carolina. He did win 28 games in those four years and is considered a pretty good coach. We might add that though he was not implicated in the NCAA investigation...or at least he hasn't been...yet.

He will not be subject to the NCAA show-cause penalty unless he is.

Davis currently works as a "Sepcial" defensive assistant for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also had a stint coaching at the University of Miami and is somewhat familiar with the area.
