Report: Detroit Mercy hires Mike Davis as men's basketball coach

DETROIT (WXYZ) -- Detroit Mercy is hiring Mike Davis as its new men's basketball coach, according to a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Davis spent the past six seasons as head coach at Texas Southern, compiling a 115-89 record (including four NCAA Tournament appearances) during that time.

Prior to Texas Southern, Davis spent six seasons (2006-2012) as head coach at UAB and six seasons (2000-2006) before that at Indiana, where he succeeded Bob Knight. Davis led the Hoosiers to the 2002 National Championship game, where they lost to Maryland.

Davis holds a career head coaching record of 352-241 with nine NCAA Tournament appearances.

Detroit Mercy fired head coach Bacari Alexander in March after two seasons.
