Steve Bell tweets that “UD might have a damn good coach coming despote themselves. But we’ll see.” and “WOTS it’s Mike Davis”

He's everywhere. He's everywhere. In fact, he logs on to this board frequently from a top secret offshore location.

Nothing is official yet. Something may become official today ... or tomorrow ... or it may not become official ... or the new coach may be Mike Davis ... or it may not be Mike Davis. This is the way the final stages of any hiring process should occur regardless of who is in charge.

If there is to be an announcement tomorrow, then news should start to leak later today.

Yeah, Steve Bell tweeted out the same “WOTS” stuff when it appeared we hired Bronkema.

Mike Davis has an assistant coach with the last name “Chatman” at Texas Southern. Ironic.

But the fact was that we were in the final stages of trying to negotiate a contract with the person believed to be Bronkema. There is a big difference between choosing the guy to try and hire and actually hiring him. And even if you get a signed contract, a person can change his mind - just ask the Indianapolis Colts.

I don't feel a story of that subject should ever be a shocker when it comes to Detroit Mercy basketball.

Not sure where they are getting 4-stars from - every site I can find has him at 3 stars and 247sports has him as the 277th player in the country. Still a good player!

Actually yes, I expected it, heard about it last week. However in light of the fact that some people don't have confirmation and are posting speculative information, I didn't feel it right to post. Speculation is ok, but I caution people not to get too excited just yet.

From the Coaching Changes Twitter site, seems like neautral observers even more frustrated with the slow process than Titan fans: “Now playing the role of ‘can't get right’ ROBERT VOWELS AD of Detroit Mercy..... Monday week (9) and no coach.... how did you not close the deal with Davis over weekend?”

Coaching changes probably isn't aware that Vowels does not work weekends.

I think Vowels spends his weekends counting all the money we've paid him.

Maybe because it takes other administrators to sign off on the deal?

(Contrary to what some on this board feel, Vowels doesn't run the entire university by himself. He doesn't determine how much budget the university gives athletics, he didn't own the branding, he doesn't control admissions, he doesn't control HR...…)

I think we've been trolled and had again and that Jermaine Jackson Sr. will be named our coach sometimes in July.

I'm pretty certain that we are not being trolled on this one.

Also, remember that Coaching Changes has more than one writer who writes under that Twitter handle. From near the beginning of this long saga, a person who was writing about us on Coaching Changes was in the tank for Zeigler because of his local ties and his claim that because Zeigler won two division titles in the MAC (with losing records) that made Zeigler a success.

Attached is recent commentary from Terry Foster that references Mike Davis and also mentions Stan Heath (attended Detroit Catholic Central High School and played at Eastern Michigan) as a possible candidate.
