Former Auburn WR Marcus Davis lands Mountain West coaching job
Former Auburn WR Marcus Davis has opened a new chapter to his coaching career, as he was recently hired to coach wide receivers at Hawaii, the school announced.
Davis, who was previously an offensive graduate assistant at Florida State, played and coached at Auburn. He’s reunited with another former Gus Malzahn assistant, Todd Graham, the Hawaii coach.
“Marcus has played and coached within our system both at Auburn and Florida State so he knows and understands how to teach our offense,” Graham said in a news release. “He’s a dynamic relationship-builder and through the process, he rose to the top. He knows how to develop players, he’s outstanding at teaching the fundamentals of wide receiver play, and most importantly, he believes in our culture.”
Davis had a productive career on The Plains. He played in 50 career games with 15 starts and made 83 career receptions. Davis was eighth all-time at Auburn in punt return average (9.76).
Davis was a three-year starter and team captain at Auburn, and after his playing career, he became an offensive analyst for the Tigers in 2018 and assistant director of player development and personnel in 2019. From there, he joined Mike Norvell’s staff at Florida State for the 2020 season.
