Looks Like Ole Miss Is Hiring Kermit Davis Away From MTSU
It appears as though the bad news is going to continue to pile on for MTSU. First, they weren’t called to the big dance – not making the NCAA Tournament after getting bounced in the C-USA tournament. Now, it seems that one SEC program is making a run at head basketball coach Kermit Davis.

Just brutal. This guy has been the face of the MTSU men’s basketball team since I was A FRESHMAN at MTSU. Davis has coached the Blue Raiders since 2002. That’s astounding. He and Rick Stockstill were like the pillars of all MTSU athletics. It would unquestionably be a sad day to see him go.
Davis’ MTSU teams have won two regular season conference titles and three conference championship tournaments. The guy is just seven wins shy of 400. The Blue Raiders have not only made it to the NCAA Tournament for the last two years, but they’ve pulled the upset twice. Last year, they defeated a pretty decent Minnesota team, but in 2016, they pulled one of the biggest upsets in tournament history, taking down a Michigan State team that was one of the favorites to win the whole tournament. It’s been a damn good run if this happens to be the end of it.
This would obviously be a huge blow to my alma mater, the Harvard of the South, but we will continue to update this story as it develops.
