After a 14-year absence that included stops in the Big Ten, the Pac-10, the NFL and the Southeastern Conference, Tim Davis returned as Utah's offensive line coach in January 2011. Davis, a Ute offensive tackle from 1978-80, also coached Utah's offensive line from 1990-96.

Since leaving after the 1996 season, Davis has coached at Wisconsin (1997-2001), USC (2002-04), the Miami Dolphins (2005-06) and Minnesota (2009-10). He was the director of player personnel at Alabama in 2008.

Davis has coached in 15 bowl games, including four during his first seven-year term in Salt Lake City, and was on the staff of two national champion teams while at USC. The Trojans were ranked No. 1 by the Associated Press and the Football Writers Association of America in 2003 with a 12-1 record despite not playing in the BCS championship game. USC was declared the BCS national champion in 2004, defeating Oklahoma in the title game to finish 13-0.

The veteran offensive line coach has sent 11 players to the NFL, including former Utes Andy Parker, Barry Sims, Lance Scott and Anthony Brown. Brown was a third-team A.P. All-American, while Scott made first-team all-Western Athletic Conference. Another all-conference player for Davis was USC's Jake Rodgers, who was first-team all-Pac-10.

At the start of his career, Davis spent seven years toiling as a student, graduate student or volunteer coach at Utah (1981-82), Wisconsin (1983-86) and Arizona (1987). He then spent one year in the junior college ranks as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Walla Walla Community College. His first NCAA job was at Idaho State in 1989.

Other than a year as Nick Saban's director of player personnel at Alabama in 2008, Davis has spent his entire career coaching the offensive line or tight ends. He was Utah's offensive line coach from 1990-93, then managed the tight ends and offensive tackles from 1994-96, before going to Wisconsin as the tight ends coach from 1997-01.

He was the offensive line coach at USC from 2002-04, leaving for a job as an offensive line assistant for the Miami Dolphins from 2005-06. Most recently, he was the offensive line coach and run game coordinator at Minnesota from 2009-10.

Davis lettered three years on the offensive line at Utah, earning the team's Most Inspirational Player award in 1980. He is a member of the Chabot College Hall of Fame. After finishing at Utah, he played for the Hamilton Tigercats of the CFL and the L.A. Express of the USFL.
