In coming to Georgia in 2009 as Director of Basketball Operations, Kent Davison continued a long career in coaching that has covered many different levels, including high school, college, professional and international teams.

A graduate of Sterling (Kan.) College, Davison went to the NAIA school as a scholarship football player but soon changed sports. He lettered in both baseball and basketball at Sterling and was the college’s athlete of the year in his senior year, 1971-72.

Davison began his coaching career in basketball, football and tennis at Winfield (Kan.) High School in 1974. At age 24, he was named Winfield’s head basketball coach. He also taught accounting. In 1979, he became an assistant coach at Wichita State, where in his two seasons there he coached future NBA players Cliff Levingston and Antoine Carr.

Davison’s relationship with Mark Fox began at his next stop, where he coached at Garden City Community College for 17 seasons, the final six as the Broncbusters’ head coach. Three of his GCCC teams won 20 games, and he sent more than 50 players on to Division I programs, most prominently Keith Smart, the hero of Indiana’s 1987 NCAA championship team.

Davison was head coach at three different NBA Developmental League franchises: Roanoke (2001-06), Colorado (2007) and Fort Wayne (2008). He also coached teams in the United States Basketball League (Dodge City, which he led to the 2000 USBL title) and the Continental Basketball Association (Fort Wayne).

Before coming to Georgia, Davison served the 2008 year as head coach of the national team of the country of Qatar.

Davison has a BS in Business, and also a master’s degree in Secondary Education, from Fort Hays (Kan.) State. A native of Rochester, Pa., Davison has two sons, Matthew and Andrew; a daughter-in-law, Jazmin; and two grandsons, Jaxon and Rhys.
