CMU Hires Keno Davis As Basketball Coach

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — Central Michigan is hiring Keno Davis as its new basketball coach.

An athletic department spokesman says CMU will hold a news conference Tuesday afternoon to introduce Davis, who replaces Ernie Zeigler at the helm. Zeigler was fired last month after back-to-back 21-loss seasons.

CBSSports.com first reported Davis’ hiring.

Davis was the AP’s national coach of the year in 2008 when he was at Drake. He then went to Providence, where he coached three seasons before being fired last March.

Davis went 19-14 and reached the NIT in his first season at Providence, but the Friars went 8-28 in Big East play over the next two seasons.
