Report: Texas Will Replace Greg Davis As Offensive Coordinator

[Update]: DMN now back-tracking from ill-considered "fired" headline and apparently made some phone calls before finding out that there will be no announcement today from Bellmont. Of course, that doesn't mean it won't happen, but certainly slows down the timetable for celebrations and increases the possibility that it may be a repeat of 2003 all over again, when there were other reports of Davis' demise. --GoBR--

The first report came from Orangeblood's Geoff Ketchum on Twitter at about 10 am CST (though Recruitocosm was the first site to report that Davis would be replaced):

Multiple sources have confirmed this morning that the Longhorns will replace Greg Davis as offensive coordinator.

Since then, other outlets have picked up the news, including Orangebloods publishing the story on their website, along with the Dallas Morning News and CBS Sports picking up Ketchum's original report. In other words, there hasn't been any confirmation from other news outlets at this time, so this certainly isn't a done deal, especially since the university is yet to make an official announcement.

So at this point, it's hard to believe that Davis might finally be gone given the 16 years that he has spent with Mack Brown -- it seemed that Davis would be with his longtime friend unti the end of his career, but even if the report is true, it's possible Davis may not be finished with the program. The major likelihood -- if this does happen -- is that Davis will end up in another position in the athletic department, which sounds like it could be a destination for any other coaches that won't continue in their current position next season.

Stay tuned for more news as the day unfolds, including a possible announcement from the school and further analysis as it is warranted.
