Davis became UNC’s 20th Head Coach.

Davis began his basketball coaching career in 2012 as an assistant coach to head UNC coach Roy Williams. He replaced Williams’ former assistant Jerod Hasse.

Williams had previously helped Davis get into UNC and also coached him during the 1991 World University Games. As a result, he was well acquainted with his abilities and considered him his first go-to option for the vacant spot of an assistant coach. During a prepared statement with ESPN in May 2012, Williams said,

“For the last four or five years Hubert has always been on my mind in case a spot did come open. I didn't know if I could get him to come back, but I knew I wanted him to be the first option. I am elated that I can fill this spot with Hubert.”

Davis groomed his basketball coaching abilities under Roy Williams for nine years until April 2021. After that, Williams announced his retirement and made his assistant coach Davis his successor. With that, Davis became the 20th head coach of the University basketball team. Moreover, he became the first-ever black head coach of the University’s men’s basketball team. 

Within a year of his takeover as a head coach, he won the College Basketball Coach of the Year award in 2022. He led the Tar Heels to a 29-10 season in his first season and led them to the final four in the NCAA Division 1 Championship.

He Was a Sports Analyst at ESPN

Besides being a former player and coach, Davis also has a history of working on television. After retiring from his NBA playing career, he served for several years as an ESPN studio analyst. In addition, he also co-hosted the game show College Gameday on ESPN.

The UNC head coach has been married to his wife Leslie for a long time now. Although they have not revealed their exact marriage date, the pair first met each other at UNC, as per the recent article on The Focus. Leslie graduated one year later than Davis, and after six years, they tied in a marital relationship.

The pair are parents to their three children, sons Elijah, daughter Bobbie, and youngest son Micah from their marriage. His eldest son Elijah is also a college basketball player and represents the University of Lynchburg.

Davis is a proud father and husband. He regularly shares family pictures on his Instagram handle @coachdavisunc. Moreover, Davis also brings up his wife and kids during press meets and conferences.

However, Davis’s ethnic identity comment “white wife” drew public attention and criticism on social media this time.
