Broadcaster Davis Flattered By UT A.D. Talk

Fox and NFL Network analyst Charles Davis said today on WNML-AM/FM in Knoxville that he is flattered that his name has been mentioned in connection with the soon-to-be-opened athletic director position at Tennessee.  Davis was a defensive back at UT in the mid-1980s.


“I’m extremely flattered and humbled.  I have a terrific job that I love.  I don’t want to sound like I’m at a press conference making one of those great statements where I say something without saying anything.  Bottom line, let’s just put it on the table.  If mama calls, you listen to mama.  Just like Bear Bryant said.  For him he was a coach and mama called him to go coach.  I’m not an athletic director.  But if mama called and wanted to talk to me, how could I not talk to mama? 

I’m not saying I’m interested in the job.  I’m not campaigning for the job.  I’m not asking for the job.  In fact, I firmly believe that it’ll never get to that anyway, because what I think Tennessee is looking for is someone who’s already doing this.” 


Davis did serve as an assistant athletic director at Stanford from 1994 through 1996.
