Providence announced today they will buy out the remaining five years on Keno Davis' contract and look for a new coach. He was there for just three seasons.
Davis, who was 2008 AP National Coach of the Year in his first and only year at Drake, had been an assistant under his legendary father, Tom Davis, who has 598 career wins and is best known for his successes at Boston College and Iowa. Keno Davis spent just one year at Drake before accepting the position at Providence. He took Providence to the NIT in his first season, but after two disappointing season, the school decided to let him walk.
Keno Davis is a good coach and he will certainly find work. It's a shame he was given so little time, but that's the nature of college basketball this day and age. People want instant results.
