College Football

Former Pitt Running Back Vincent Davis Transfers To UNLV

Published

on

It didn’t take long for Vincent Davis to decide on where he’ll play his final season of college football.

Just a week after entering the transfer portal, the former Pitt running back will go out West to play for the UNLV Rebels. Davis will be joining a familiar face, as the new offensive coordinator for UNLV is former Pitt wide receivers coach Brennan Marion.

During his career at Pitt, the 5-foot-8, 180-pound back from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida rushed for 1,813 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns, to go along with 64 receptions for 413 yards and a touchdown.

This past season, Davis received 52 carries and rushed for 274 yards and a touchdown, obviously not receiving a ton of work due to the workload that Izzy Abanikanda and Rodney Hammond received. His best season as a Panther came in 2020 when he started nine games and rushed 143 times for 632 yards and six touchdowns.

Davis will have one season of athletic eligibility remaining.

Thought he could’ve gone to a better program, but good luck and the connection w. Marion makes sense.

NO … since 2011, he has had 11 jobs. Only Howard U job lasted 2 seasons, everything else 1 and done. It would have been hard to keep him at Pitt, even with a title and dough.

Apparently wore out his welcome at Texas. The old saw comes to mind “addition by subtraction”. Wish Vincent all the best.

Now he’s a troll who apparently lives in the Pittsburgh area. Couldn’t get a job at Singer so he moved back to Pittsburgh. His primary complaint is that Pitt gets too much press in Pittsburgh and the Beast of the East gets little. PS lost its chance to take over Pitt when Chancellor Litchfield drove his plane into Lake Michigan in 1969. He was bankrupting Pitt in his quest to join the Ivy League. There was talk that PS would rescue Pitt. Fat chance now. PS gets little coverage in Pittsburgh because what’s left after da Steelers and Penguins goes… Read more »
