'It's great to be wanted,' Davis says of new UAB job
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Former Indiana coach Mike Davis took over UAB's basketball program Friday, returning to his home state after a rocky tenure with the Hoosiers.
The 45-year-old Davis, a native of Fayette who played for Alabama, replaces Mike Anderson, who left the Blazers to become coach at Missouri.
Davis announced his resignation from Indiana on Feb. 16, effective at the end of the season. The Hoosiers finished 19-12, losing to Gonzaga in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
