Report: Missouri to hire Florida offensive line coach Brad Davis to same position

Brad Davis, who spent one season in Gainesville coaching the Gators offensive line, is headed to a new team in the SEC East.

According to a Friday afternoon report from Football Scoop, Missouri is set to hire Davis to the same position with the Tigers. It will be the second time in as many days that Barry Odom has hired away an assistant coach from another program in the SEC.

Davis’ now only season in Gainesville was spent under former coach Jim McElwain and interim coach Randy Shannon.

Football Scoop also reports that Dan Mullen wanted Davis to stay on board with Florida but coach tight ends.

Davis will bring nearly 15 years of assistant coaching experience, mostly along the offensive and defensive lines, to Odom’s staff in Columbia.

He will be charged with keeping SEC record-holder Drew Lock (if he returns to school) clean and establishing a better run game to take away some of the attention from Lock and the Tigers explosive passing attack.
