Davis returns to the cross country programs for his sixth season as the assistant cross country coach.

In 2015, Davis helped the men's and women's cross country teams continue to compete at a high level with second place finishes from both at the ODAC Cross Country Championships. Four runners from each side were selected to the All-ODAC team. The men and women also ran strong against regional competition after both squads placed seventh at the NCAA South/Southeast Regional Championships.

2014 was a successful year for the men's and women's cross country programs, as Davis helped guide the men's program to its second straight NCAA Championship appearance, along with its second straight ODAC team title. The women's team also qualified one athlete for the NCAA Championship and won its third ODAC team title in four years.

In three seasons with the men's and women's cross country programs, Davis has helped coach a total of 21 All-ODAC athletes, and 15 All-South/Southeast Region athletes, including three NCAA Championship individual qualifiers and one NCAA Championship qualifying team. Other accolades earned by the programs with Davis' assistance included 1 ODAC Runner of the Year, 1 ODAC Rookie of the Year and the women's first ODAC team championship in school history in 2011.

Davis has served primarily as the jumps coach for the indoor and outdoor track and field programs since 2010, but his experience with cross country is not limited to his seasons at Bridgewater. Prior to coming to BC, Davis served as the associate head coach for boys and girls cross country and track and field at Lake Braddock Secondary School in Burke, VA from 2006-2010. During his tenure with the cross country programs there, Davis coached 32 All-Patriot District, 11 All-Northern Region and 3 VHSL AAA All-State Cross Country performers, including 2 Patriot District and 2 Northern Region Champions. Davis helped lead his teams to a combined 5 Patriot District team championships, 2 Northern Region team championships and 1 VHSL AAA State championship.

Davis is no stranger to the ODAC either, having competed for Lynchburg College for four years as a member of the men's cross country, indoor and outdoor track teams. While at LC, Davis was member of 2 cross country ODAC champion teams, 4 indoor track and field ODAC champion teams and 4 outdoor track and field ODAC champion teams, and was also a member of the 2005 conference meet record setting Distance Medley Relay team. Davis was also a four-time Academic All-ODAC selection for cross country, indoor and outdoor track while at LC.

Davis received his bachelor's degree in History from LC in 2005 and his master's degree in history from George Mason University in 2009.

Davis serves as the recruiting coordinator for all Bridgewater cross country and track and field programs and also serves as an instructor in Bridgewater's Department of History and Political Science.

Davis is a member of USA Track & Field and the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. He holds a USA Track & Field Level 1 Coaching certification and holds a USTFCCCA Jumps Specialist Certification.
