Former Miami Coach Butch Davis Interested in Coaching ‘Canes

According to Brett McMurphy of ESPN, Butch Davis is interested in the newly vacated coaching position at Miami.

Yeah, that Butch Davis–the same Butch Davis who coached the Hurricanes to an 11-1 season in 2000; they finished as the nation’s No. 2-ranked team and Davis, who went 51-20 from 1995 to 2000, then accepted a job with the Cleveland Browns.

The next season, Larry Coker coached Davis’ men to the national championship. Evidently, Davis, who hasn’t coached since 2010 (North Carolina), wouldn’t mind another go-round in Coral Gables. He’s quick too, as the Hurricanes just fired former coach Al Golden on Sunday–just hours after a program-worst 58-0 loss to Clemson.

Despite a lengthy absence from coaching, Davis has remained around the game, most recently serving as analyst for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012-13. He was also the GM of the Browns from 2001-2004, so he certainly has the necessary experience to be considered for the Miami job.

That, and he’s been there before, had the ‘Canes on the brink of glory… all of that only makes the story that much more interesting.
