Greg Davis To Iowa Is Apparently A Go. This Is Not A Drill

If you were hoping that the Greg Davis rumors were nothing but smoke and disinformation, well, today is not your day. Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman, a gentleman who is about as well-connected to the Texas football program as Mack Brown himself, reported today that Greg Davis had accepted the Iowa offensive coordinator position.

If there's any solace to be taken from this report, it's that it's just that: a report. Iowa hasn't confirmed this news yet (Steve Roe told me over email this afternoon that he couldn't confirm anything), and what with members of the football staff going all I'M ON A BOAT, there's a built-in excuse for delaying the announcement for about as long as they'd like.

Patrick ably summed up what kind of a coach Greg Davis is and how much sense he made as KOK's replacement (verdict: too much), so feel free to give that another read for a refresher on what Iowa's apparently getting itself into for the 2012 season and beyond. Past that, the undeniable takeaway from this alleged hire is this from Jason Kirk:

This would just about complete Iowa's coaching staff for 2012, and, despite all the upheaval, it's just about indistinguishable from last year, with 13-year Iowa vet Phil Parker taking over the defense.

Indistinguishable is a bit much, but only a bit. And as Patrick said yesterday: we should have seen this coming.
