Oklahoma Drill: CV head football coach Brett Davis leaves valley for school in home state

Brett Davis is from Oklahoma.

If his accent (which hits you harder than a middle linebacker) didn't give it away, then it's his most recent decision to head home.

After spending six seasons as head football coach at Coachella Valley high school, Davis has accepted the head coaching position at Spiro high school, one of the top programs in the Sooner State.

"I'm really grateful for the chance and humbled to be part of such a great program at Spiro," said Davis.

This is a great opportunity for Davis but says this move was bigger than just football.

"It's going to be good to be back home, closer to my family. The whole COVID situation made re-think the importance of my family even more so than I already did," said Davis.

Davis' departure will undoubtedly leave a hole in the valley. His energy, passion and enthusiasm for the sport will be missed.

"Coach Davis has done a great service for the school and city of Coachella. The entire Arabs family is appreciative of his success of the program and we wish him nothing but the best for him and his family," said Jason Castillo, CVHS athletic director.

But as much as the Arabs will miss Davis, CV will always be special to him.

"I'll miss the kids I got to work with every day. The community welcomed me in and I was blessed to have great support there," said Davis.

Beloved by his players, his aggressive aerial attack offense was fun to watch every Friday night, especially the record-setting 2018 season when the offense averaged nearly 50 points and 450 yards per game.

Davis led the Arabs to two league championships, a playoff win and some notable victories over local powerhouse programs.

"I wish the kids success. These kids in the east valley really deserve to do great things and they can do great things. I'll always love them and miss them," said Davis.

According to Castillo, no word on a new head coach at CV has been made at this time.

"We are going to look for someone who is going to put the best interest of the athletes first, not only in football but academically and in life."
