Coach Davis enters his 21st season as a basketball coach at Millbrook High School, and his fifth as head varsity coach. Davis took over as the program's head coaching duties on April 3rd, 2017 after 16 years as both a junior varsity head coach, and an associate head coach at the varsity level. The Wildcats won the 2021 4A Men's Basketball State Championship in Davis' fourth season. He is a three-time Conference Coach of the Year, the 2019 NCBCA District Coach of the Year, the 2017 NCHSAA Homer Thompson "Eight Who Make A Difference" award winner, and has a career varsity record of 86-19 entering the 2021-22 season.

In 2018-19 Davis guided Millbrook to a perfect 24-0 regular season, the program's highest national ranking (#24 by USA Today), a Cap-7 Conference championship, an appearance in the NCHSAA final four and he was named a finalist for the MaxPreps' National Coach of the Year Award.

 

Davis has three career NCHSAA 4A State Championship appearances including a championship in 2021 following a 67-65 overtime victory over Ardrey Kell.Tf

 

The AAU basketball circuit is where Davis, a graduate of Enloe High School and North Carolina State University caught his big break. Starting as an AAU coach in 1992, Davis found himself coaching in the 17U AAU National Championship by 1999 with the Raleigh Heat, a club headlined by Shavlik Randolph.

 

Randolph, along with Eric Williams, Anthony Richardson, JJ Redick, Michael Thompson, Matt Walsh, and Sean Dockery have all gone from playing under Davis to appearing in the McDonald’s All-American Game.

 

72 former Wildcats have moved on to play collegiate athletics at the next level including 19 active college and professional basketball alumni such as Chris Clemons, Trejon Jacob, Eric van der Heijden, and East Tennessee State University head Women's Basketball coach Simon Harris.

Davis is the 13th head basketball in Millbrook history.
