Kermit Davis enters his 12th season at the helm of the Middle Tennessee program in 2013-14 and is fresh off one of the most successful seasons in program history.
MT claimed its second-straight Sun Belt Conference regular season crown, after posting program-best records with a 28-6 overall mark and a 19-1 mark in conference play during the 2012-13 campaign. Davis then picked up back-to-back Sun Belt Coach of the Year honors, marking the third time he has received the award (2013, 2012 and 2003). Under his guidance, the Blue Raiders have won the Sun Belt regular season title three times in the past four seasons.
Middle Tennessee reached the NCAA Tournament last season for the first time since 1989 and seventh time in program history, when the team took on Saint Mary’s in a First Four matchup.
After such a successful 2012-13 season, Davis was listed as one of the finalists for the Hugh Durham National Coach of the Year Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top mid-major coach. He is the all-time winningest coach in program and Sun Belt history, amassing 208 victories.
