Joe Davis joined the University at Albany football coaching staff in January of 2018. He will serve as the Great Danes' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the 2018 season.
Davis previously served in the same role at Fordham for the past two seasons. In 2017, the Rams ranked third in the Patriot League in total offense (371.7 yards per game), passing efficiency (126.5) and passing yards (238.9 per game). Quarterback Kevin Anderson threw for 1,756 yards and 14 touchdowns.
“We’re very excited about the experience Joe brings to our staff,” UAlbany Head Coach, Greg Gattuso, said. “He has experience coaching quarterbacks, and he’s been an offensive coordinator. Having him on staff will help our offense on the field and help us in recruiting.”
Davis was offensive coordinator at Northern Iowa for the 2015 season, when the Panthers reached the Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinals thanks in part to a school-record 3,266 rushing yards. He also worked as an offensive coordinator at Shippensburg University and has coached at Wheaton College, North Park University and Wayne State.
A 2002 graduate of Adrian College, Davis played three seasons of professional football in the Arena Football League and National Indoor Football League, starting at quarterback for the Evansville Bluecats, Lubbock Lonestars, Fayetteville Guard, Tampa Bay Storm, Columbus Destroyers and Green Bay Blizzard.
