No Butch, says his lawyer

Jon Sasser, Butch Davis' lawyer, told me Sunday Davis "will not be taking the FIU job. He intends to remain a special assistant with the Buccaneers."

This confirmed an earlier Sunday report by the Tampa Tribune.

Sasser also told me Davis has no dispute with the University of North Carolina and "no reason to believe the University will not honor its commitments." The school said upon firing Davis it owed him $590,000 each January in 2013, 2014, 2015, amount to be reduced by money Davis earns elsewhere as a coach.

So, now what? Bethune-Cookman coach and Fort Lauderdale Dillard graduate Brian Jenkins, who just signed an extension after going 27-8 his three years at Bethune, is believed to have interviewed Saturday.

Butch Davis, the special assistant/consiliere/psychic to Bucs coach Greg Schiano, is not leaving the Bucs for Florida International.

There had been many rumors of late that Davis was linked to the opening at FIU after the school parted ways with Mario Cristobal. Davis’ agent, Jon Sasser, Twittered Joe over the weekend to refute a FoxSports.com report that Davis’ settlement with the University of North Carolina, his previous employer, was an obstacle for him to take the FIU gig.

Sasser also reached out to Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune to offer the same information.

Below is what Sasser — unsolicited — Twittered Joe, and Sasser encouraged Joe to use this message as a direct quote from him.

    ‏@JonSasser: Butch Davis did not even sign a settlement with UNC upon his 2011 dismissal. … UNC’s obligations to Butch Davis are governed by the contract in time at his termination.

In other words, Davis is just abiding by his contract with North Carolina and not coaching for the time being.

So Schiano gets to keep his consiliere, which isn’t a bad thing.http://www.joebucsfan.com/?p=81172

continuity is good in some respects - wonder who on the coaching staff will be let go - players need to learn a system and stick with it - can't have a carousel of asst coaches/coordinators

Butch ain't going anywhere near a coaching job as long as he's got all that free money coming from the school he screwed over.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

S needs all the help he can get in an effort to jump start his saavy with the NFL.

Not sure what Uncle Butch does, but I am sure his opinion gets heard.

Still concerned about what Rams' LB Laurinaitis said about us showing our hand and why Davis, with his extensive NFL background, couldn't detect that and prevent it. Schiano needs some more savviness from his coaching staff. But on another note, didn't look like the Falcons could detect what plays were coming.....
