The first paragraph of that article:

"If Joe Alleva is smart, I mean, if he wanted people to think he was smart, he would hire Mike Davis as the new head basketball coach. Over his 17-year coaching career, Mike Davis holds a 335-219 record at Indiana, UAB, and Texas Southern. His accomplishments include an NCAA title game appearance, eight total NCAA tourney appearances, six regular season championships, three conference tournament championships and 2014-15 SWAC Coach of the Year."


It's a good thing there's no comment section.

Sidney Lowe was in his third Samson at NC State, and wouldn't be fired until 2011

was he channelling Kelvin or just growing his hair out for the third time?

I still believe Mike Davis is a good coach. He was really bad at a lot of the things required to be successful as a D1 bball head coach outside of simple Xs and Os and player development.

I also remember LSU specifically being mentioned.

At UAB Davis was a really good floor coach. He was a terrible program manager. He would always get the most out of the least amount of talent. If he could ever get the management part down he would be a solid coach for most programs.

Just my opinion.

Davis is a good developer of talent and he coaches his style of play well. However, the timing was wrong for him to be at UAB with that style of play. It is a boring style to watch and he followed one of the most exciting styles to watch. His aloofness to the school was his also his downfall

I remember going to the first home game CMD coached at UAB. I was absolutely shocked. I had forgotten that basketball could be played at that slow of a pace. It look me a very long time to get used to it.
