Detroit Mercy and coach Mike Davis agree to part ways after Titans finish season at 1-31

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Mercy and men's basketball coach Mike Davis have "mutually agreed to part ways" two days after the Titans finished their season with a 1-31 record, the school announced Thursday.

Davis' departure also comes a year after his son, Antoine, came four points shy of breaking Pete Maravich's NCAA men's Div. I scoring record of 3,667 points.

The Titans were 60-119 in six seasons under Davis, including 44-65 in Horizon League play. They began this season with 26 consecutive losses.

"On behalf of our entire community, I want to thank Coach Davis and his family for their dedication, commitment and competitive spirit he brought to Detroit Mercy," athletic director Robert Vowels said in a school statement. "We wish the best for him and his family as his coaching journey continues."

Davis has made four stops in his head coaching career - Indiana, UAB, Texas Southern and Detroit Mercy - staying for six years at each institution. His career record is 412-360.
