Mike Davis to Texas Southern
"It's a great opportunity for me to get back into coaching," Davis said in an interview with KRIV-TV in Houston. "I've researched Texas Southern's program."
Davis, who led Indiana to the 2002 Final Four and was 2010-11 Conference USA Coach of the Year, was offered the job after Tony Harvey resigned for personal reasons, KRIV reported.
"I think Harvey left some real good players there. They had a good program and it's one of the better jobs in the (SWAC) conference, and I'm excited to get back working and teaching," Davis said to the station.
