Coach Davis was a finalist for the EKU job but removed himself from consideration this morning— BearcatJournal.com (@BearcatJournal) April 7, 2015
Was always going to take something substantial for LD to leave, everyone should be on the recruiting trail this weekend, have 1 open spot— BearcatJournal.com (@BearcatJournal) April 7, 2015
Substantial, that is and will remain the key word in this. Larry Davis really does find himself in a good position to move on from the Bearcats should the right job come along. While the shine from the coaching job he did this winter won't last forever, it will last long enough and keep his name in circulation in the right circles for a couple more years.
Davis is no spring chicken, he knows he probably has one last shot to be a head coach, and he doesn't want to waste several years building something from scratch. EKU is not bereft by any means, they have won 20 games the last three years running. But the core of those teams are moving on. While I would never say never on Larry Davis leaving, EKU just wasn't the right job.
