Since August 2019, Davis had served as the assistant men's soccer coach and recruiting coordinator at Williams College. He assisted in all day-to-day aspects of the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) program, including in-game strategy, training sessions, scouting and video review, while also overseeing the program's recruitment of prospective student-athletes.
He helped the Ephs twice qualify for the NESCAC postseason. In 2019, Williams was ranked #7 in the NCAA New England Regional Rankings, while the team produced one All-American and CoSIDA Academic All-American, as well as three All-New England Region honorees. The team also excelled in the classroom, being recognized with the United Soccer Coaches (USC) Team Academic Award. In the recently-completed 2021 season, the Ephs again qualified for the NESCAC playoffs, and defeated a pair of nationally ranked opponents during the season.
From 2014-19, Davis served as head men's and women's coach at nearby Mount Aloysius College, where he transformed both programs into perennial powers. In his five seasons, the Mountie men reached the conference playoffs in each season and tallied an overall record of 61-33-6, while the women went a combined 52-37-5. He led the men's program to its first ever Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference championship and NCAA Division III national playoff berth in 2015, while his 2018 women's squad advanced to the AMCC championship game for the first time in team history and won a program-record 14 games. In Davis's five-year tenure, 29 men's players and 23 women's players earned All-AMCC accolades, while a total of nine players were named Great Lakes All-Region. For three years, Davis also served as a representative on the NCAA Division-III Soccer Regional Advisory Committee for the Great Lakes Region.
Davis began his coaching career at Mount Aloysius as an assistant men's and women's soccer coach for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. He served as each team's goalkeeping coach, while he also oversaw all recruiting efforts. During the 2013 season, both teams set new records for wins in a season, while the men's program earned its first conference playoff berth in program history with a starting lineup comprised of nine freshmen.
Davis is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Albright College, where he earned bachelor's degrees in business administration and communication. He was a four-year member of the men's soccer team at Albright, serving as a team captain during both his junior and senior years. As a junior, he earned CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honors and helped the Lions achieve their second-highest win total in the program's history.
Following his graduation from Albright, Davis earned his MBA, with a focus on project management, from Mount Aloysius.
Along with his coaching experience, Davis holds a United Soccer Coaches Advanced National Diploma along with Level I and II Goalkeeping Diplomas.
He and his wife Brooke will reside in Latrobe.

He headed the team’s recruitment efforts and was responsible for assisting in all day-to-day operations of the program both on and off the field.
Butler helped lead the Bulldogs to the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) playoffs in each of his four seasons with the programs, including a pair of trips to the MAC championship finals. The team went a combined 41-30-4 overall, and 18-9-1 in conference play, over the four-year span.
Butler began his coaching career at his alma mater, Geneva College, serving as an assistant coach for the men’s soccer program during the 2015-16 season. He assisted in all day-to-day operations of the program and was heavily involved in the recruitment of potential student-athletes. The Golden Tornadoes went 13-5-1 during the 2015 campaign and advanced to the PAC title game, while also earning a bid to the ECAC Division-III Championship Tournament.
