Larry Davis (June 3, 1956) is the interim head men's basketball coach at the University of Cincinnati.[1]

Davis was born in Mount Sterling, Kentucky. After moving to Indiana as a child, he graduated from Wapahani High School in Selma, Indiana in 1974. Following high school, he attended Asbury College, in Wilmore, Kentucky, from which he graduated in 1978.[2] The following year he enrolled in a graduate program at East Tennessee State University and began his coaching career as a graduate assistant.[3]

From East Tennessee, Davis moved on to coach high school teams, first at Cloverport, Kentucky, and then Oak Hill Academy, a prep school located at Mouth of Wilson, Virginia.[4][5] Before coming to Cincinnati, Davis served as head coach at Furman University from 1997 to 2006 where he compiled a 124-139 record. His single season at Cloverport compiled a 12-15 record.
