Derrick Davis resigns (Polk Co.)

Recommended Posts

Roy will be happy. He never could get Coach Davis to shave his mustache for Roys precious Murphy Fair book.

Hate to see him go was a great coach was a freshman his first year and after I graduated I started running the chains for him. Like I said great coach and even better friend. I have the out most respect for Derrick he is definitely going to be missed. Polk is heading in a rough patch I fear.

Does Polk have a replacement in mind? Someone on staff?

I played for Davis, I was part of the 2001 team that went 9-3. I never really liked him as a person but he was a good coach. I think he did all that could be expected of him given the talent pools he has had to pick from for the past 19 seasons. I don't see anyone doing any better with Polk co football than he did. I played two seasons under Jeff Williams before he was fired and Derrick took over, and while I really liked Jeff as a person he wasn't a good coach. Derrick took Williams' players and in his 2nd season we were a completely different team. Derrick was responsible for that change, like I said I didn't care much for him as a person but as a coach he deserves a lot of credit. Best of luck to him where ever he ends up.

Also meant to post Charger that I know a few of the assistant don't want it. It's nothing with the program it's higher up. If anyone on the staff takes it I believe the OC  Brewer would and he would be a good fit.

Cleveland has a HC position open.

Does anyone know where their soccer teams play their home games?

If you think soccer had anything to do with this, you’re as misinformed as I thought. I’m sure you would like to think it did, but once again you’re wrong. Nothing other than the administration in central office is the reason he left. Go back to the soccer threads with the other 8 people that care about that sport. Be careful what you wish for. I was here the last time a Davis left this program. That didn’t end well.

Where does Polk go from here?

19 year career @ Polk County.

Look for them to hire the current offensive coordinator, Rusty Brewer. I don’t think the school system is in financial condition to go after another head coach.
