Davis would be good fit at NSU

Northwestern State athletic director Greg Burke has been dead on when it comes to hiring coaches to lead the Demons into battle, regardless of the sport.

His next choice -- filling the shoes of baseball coach Mitch Gaspard, who returned to Alabama earlier this week -- is sitting on campus.

He is someone who hasn't attracted a lot of attention. He is someone who has been proficient in what he's done.

He is someone with strong ties to the program and a long tenure in Natchitoches. He is someone who knows exactly how to keep the Demons' program at its lofty stature in the Southland Conference.

He is J.P. Davis, currently the NSU pitching coach. The seasons in which the Demons' enjoyed their biggest amount of success were ones in which the pitching staff sparkled and shined.

With a program in a state of flux, it makes little sense to take away another stable piece of the puzzle, making Davis that much better a fit at Brown-Stroud Field.
