ESPN: Butch Davis to become new FIU football coach



Butch Davis is headed back to south Florida.

The former Miami head coach will accept that position at Florida International, ESPN reported Monday evening.

Davis coached the ‘Canes from 1995-2000, going 51-20. He also coached the Cleveland Browns and North Carolina, when the school had an academic scandal. Davis was a Bucs assistant under Greg Schiano.

He will replace Ron Turner, who was fired by FIU in September.
