PC expected to part ways with Davis, Army on Sunday

March 9, 2011

A resolution regarding the status of men’s basketball head coach Keno Davis and men’s hockey coach Tim Army is expected to come as quickly as this Sunday, when the school is targeting to announce that Davis and Army will not be retained.
Cutting ties with Army figures to be an easier matter for PC officials, since the East Providence native only has one year left on his contract. The same cannot be said with Davis, who still has five years remaining. Finding a way to negotiate a buyout that would satisfy all interested parties figures to be a matter heavily discussed in the coming days. Keep in mind Providence did not make Davis sign an opt-out clause when he became the coach in April 2008.
What’s clear is that change is a must for both programs. Under Army the hockey Friars missed the last three Hockey East Tournaments, one whose field invites eight of 10 schools. Under Army the Friars have posted five straight losing seasons.
Davis is coming off back-to-back 4-14 finishes in Big East play. Even worse are the off-the-court issues that have sprouted up regularly under his watch, which have soured many Friar fans. PC ended its season Tuesday night with a humiliating 87-66 loss to Marquette in the first round of the Big East Tournament.
