Mt. Juliet Christian named the school's fifth head football coach Monday night.

Dan Davis who has spent the last nine seasons at Pearl Cohn was introduced as the Saints new head man.

Davis replaces Jake Roberts who resigned in February to take an assistant coaches job at Karns.

The Saints who compete in Division II-A are coming off a 3-7 season and Roberts was 5-15 in his two seasons there.

“We are excited to have hired a coach of such great experience, knowledge and commitment," MJCA Athletic Director Paul Christensen said.

"We cannot wait to see what the future holds for our football program and I am confident that we have found the right man to get this job done and done well.”

Davis has coached nearly every position at Pearl Cohn serving as the team's offensive and special teams coordinator, as well as coaching linebackers, running backs and both offensive and defensive lines.

He has also served as the Firebirds
strength and conditioning coach and was the head freshman coach as well.

Davis started his coaching career at Glencliff where he coached the Colts offensive and defensive lines for two years before moving on to Pearl Cohn.

After graduating from Rufus King High school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Davis accepted a scholarship to play both football and golf at Tennessee State.

He will teach History at MJCA and is very active in local politics as he is currently the 1st Vice Chair of the Tennessee Republican Minority Coalition and the 2nd Vice Chair of the Tennessee Republican Assembly.

Currently there are open jobs at Chattanooga Central, Morristown East, Cascade, Mt. Pleasant and Dresden as schools currently looking for a head coach.
