Mike Davis Biography
Mike Davis was born September 15, 1960 in Fayette, Alabama and is a college basketball coach. He is currently the head men's basketball coach at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He formerly held the same position at Indiana University.
On April 7, 2006, Mike Davis was hired as the new head coach of the UAB Blazers. Davis replaced Mike Anderson, who left UAB after a successful stint to become the head coach at Missouri. The Blazers finished 1516 in Davis' first season at the helm, earning a 9th seed in the Conference USA tournament and losing to 8th seed Marshall 5352 in the first round. UAB subsequently failed to qualify for the NCAA men's basketball tournament, ending the Blazers' three-year streak of appearances in the NCAA post-season and causing some to question whether Davis was the right man for the job.
Despite several injuries and academic casualties in Davis' second year at UAB, Davis led the Blazers to a 229 regular season record and a 2nd place finish in Conference USA. The Blazers narrowly missed making the NCAA men's basketball tournament and instead were rewarded with an appearance in the NIT.
On April 24, 2007; the University Board of Trustees rewarded Coach Davis with a 2 year contract extension. The contract which now runs through the 20122013 season features a base salary that was increased to $625,000 from $600,000 annually. He is also eligible for increased incentives, including $35,000 for taking UAB to the NCAA Tournament, $75,000 each for a Sweet 16 appearance and a Final Four appearance and $100,000 for appearing in the national championship game. The buyout clause in the contract was increased from $500,000 to $625,000. This contract is fully guaranteed.
