Brent Davis begins his second season with the Army Football program as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.
In his first season at Army West Point, Davis guided an offense that was fifth in the country in rushing yards per game at 296.5.
Davis also tutored running back Larry Dixon who rushed for 1,102 yards as a senior and for more than 3,000 yards for his career. Dixon was 39th in the nation in rushing yards during his final campaign and 40th in rushing yards per contest at 91.8.
Davis helped quarterback Angel Santiago rank 60th in the country with 10 rushing touchdowns.
As the primary play-caller, Davis led Army to 33 rushing touchdowns and 358.8 yards of total offense per contest.
Davis also worked with the offensive line, a unit that featured a different starting five on 10 occasions and still had Army among the nation’s rushing leaders.
Center Matt Hugenberg was named to two different postseason all-star teams and Dixon collected honors for three different squads.
Prior to Army, Davis spent four seasons as Georgia Southern's offensive coordinator and also coached the offensive line in his second stint in Statesboro, Ga. A veteran triple option coordinator, Davis helped the Eagles to three consecutive trips to the national semifinals. Georgia Southern boasted the top rushing offense in two consecutive seasons in 2011 and 2012.
Davis also coached at Georgia Southern from 1997-05 when he guided the offensive line and running backs as the Eagles won seven conference championships and made eight playoff appearances. With Davis' charges blocking up front, Georgia Southern captured four consecutive FCS rushing titles as well as the 2004 scoring title with 47.0 points per contest. Eight lineman earned All-Southern Conference honors and three were voted All-American. Charles Clark won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy in 2002, presented to the best offensive lineman in the Southern Conference.
Davis guided the running backs from 1997-99 and worked with Adrian Peterson, the 1999 Walter Payton Award winner and SoCon Offensive Player of the Year. Peterson collected All-America honors and amassed over 2,600 yards in 15 games. Peterson was drafted in the sixth round by the Chicago Bears and played for eight seasons in the NFL.
Davis later moved to coaching the offensive line before departing for Virginia Military Institute as its offensive coordinator. Davis spent four seasons at VMI, his final season as interim head coach, before returning to Georgia Southern.
The Keydets, running the triple option, led the Big South in rushing in all four of Davis' seasons. VMI established a conference-record 357.5 yards per game average in 2008 while the 2009 squad racked up 276.6 rushing yards per game. Both the 2008 and 2009 teams led the nation in rushing. In 2007, VMI produced four 500-plus yard games and ranked fourth in the nation in rushing and 34th in total offense.
Davis earned a pair of varsity letters at The Citadel as a tight end before transferring to the University of Georgia. He lettered and earned a spot on the Academic All-SEC Honor Roll before graduating from Georgia in 1997 with a degree in business management.
Davis and his wife Jen, a Georgia Southern graduate, reside at West Point.
