Before Brad Davis arrived at North Texas following the conclusion of the 2015 season, offensive tackle Trey Keenan had experienced a number of different offensive line coaches throughout his first four seasons of college football.

Keenan was recruited by Tommy Tuberville to sign with Texas Tech in 2012, but Tuberville lasted just one more season in Lubbock as he resigned at the end of the year and accepted a job at Cincinnati. Then, Kliff Kingsbury arrived and brought in his own new staff for the Red Raiders, replacing offensive line coach Chris Thomsen with Lee Hays.

After the 2014 season, Keenan opted to transfer to North Texas and sat out the 2015 season per NCAA transfer rules, but midseason UNT head coach Dan McCarney was fired. Soon, the Mean Green hired Seth Littrell, who made changes to numerous positions on the coaching staff, including at offensive line where Davis replaced Mike Simmonds.

That’s not even mentioning Texas Tech making a number of changes at offensive line coach following the 2011 season after Keenan had already committed to the Red Raiders, with TTU replacing Matt Moore with Jim Turner that December and then replacing Turner, who left to coach for the Miami Dolphins in February after National Signing Day, with Thomsen.

At the start, Keenan admits he was hesitant into buying into another new offensive line coach in Davis, but as the season progressed he became a believer in his new position coach, who was recently hired by Florida to serve in the same role.
