It’s not quite yet official that Kermit Davis will be the new Ole Miss coach, but recent reports seem to have it as a done deal. And apparently, Davis already has some plans for his new staff.
According to Neal McCready of RebelGrove.com, Davis is planning to bring two of his current assistants at Middle Tennessee State with him when he joins the Rebels. Davis may also hire former LSU coach John Brady to join his staff, per McCready.
Davis’ staff at Middle Tennessee State currently includes three assistant coaches: Greg Grensing, Win Case and Ronnie Hamilton. It is not clear yet which assistants could be joining Davis when he leaves for Ole Miss.
Brady coached at LSU from 1997-2008, winning SEC Coach of the Year in 2000 and 2006. After his stint with the Tigers, he was the coach at Arkansas State from 2008-16. Brady also coached Samford from 1991-97.
However, Brady has not been an assistant since he coached at New Orleans in 1990-91. He was also an assistant at Mississippi State from 1982-90.
Brady is a Mississippi native who played for Division III Belhaven from 1972-76.
If Davis hires Brady to join his staff at Ole Miss, it will certainly be beneficial to have an assistant with a great wealth of experience. Brady has a 402-344 career head-coaching record, which includes a 192-139 mark while at LSU.
