Probably because we don't have a signed contract from Davis. I suspect we have a verbal agreement from Davis. He told TSU about it. For some reason, they decided to announce his departure AND his next gig, which is highly unusual. Now we are in a position where we can't control the story, and we can't confirm the reports because nothing is in writing. Just my guess. I'm confident Davis is coming after all of this, but we need to get the contract signed and have the press conference ASAP.

Thanks for the explanation. Seems very plausable. I hope you’re right at the end of the day!

I don't think we are unreasonable for not wanting to wait any longer. We are a D1 athletic program. It's June. We need to recruit players and book opponents for this season.

From a poster on the TSU forum:

I don't know if he's actually leaving just yet... nobody is saying an agreement has actually been in place at Detroit-Mercy. This looks like a political move to me. Stay tuned!

I don’t have a good feeling about this.

This is so weird haha. Tony Paul tweeted about a photo on the team's athletic website. So I went there and there's another thank you photo to Davis (easier to see on a computer) as you go there. Also still an article saying he's leaving.

Just posted on the DetNews

Nice article, but it seems like one you would write after Davis signs a deal with UDM.

An encouraging passage in the article is the reference to Texas Southern’s “tight-budget athletic department.”

Tony Paul tweets: “Mike Davis has visited UDM and interview. Background check on the way.” This is promisbig. One step closer.

Isn’t this a few days or even weeks old?

I thought the background check news was recent, but I could very well be wrong.

Davis was in Detroit two days ago, Monday. Presumably there was a handshake deal, but no signed contract. As I mentioned before, UDM typically initiates a background check as the last step in the hiring process. Generally it is pretty basic, includes criminal check of law enforcement databases, can take a couple days. Maybe that is what the parties were waiting for to be completed before signing the contract. In the meantime, sounds like some officials at TSU have accepted that Davis is leaving, but another contingent is looking to hold on to the coach by sweetening his compensation package. But this can’t go on much longer.

With some deep investigation, I have uncovered that Antoine Davis has liked two posts on twitter about his dad and UDM. One is a video from Brad Galli about his dad and UDM. The other is the free press article that this is not yet a done deal. That’s a good sign, right?

Yes in my opinion, especially if done today, is good news!

Latest cranky editorial Tweet from Coaching Changes: “If U of D can't close the deal with Davis this will be the ultimate fail. Everyone there will be deemed incompetent..... Especially when they could have hired Zeigler 6 weeks ago and have a good team already...... Vowels, President, and Board.... no accountability 3 blind mice.”

Cranky but true. I am still 99% certain we get him signed.

Tony Paul tweeted:
Barring any last-minute issues, Mike Davis is going to be the next men's basketball coach at Detroit Mercy.

I think the original image from TSU also said “Thanks,” now missing?

From Coaching Changes: “We are getting plenty of tips from people that U of D has panic...... and now are rekindling relationship with Jermaine Jackson.........look for him to get job...... we really don't know what to say!”
