MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) – Central Michigan is hiring Keno

Davis as its new basketball coach.

An athletic department spokesman says CMU will hold a news

conference Tuesday afternoon to introduce Davis, who replaces Ernie

Zeigler at the helm. Zeigler was fired last month after

back-to-back 21-loss seasons.

CBSSports.com first reported Davis' hiring.

Davis was the AP's national coach of the year in 2008 when he

was at Drake. He then went to Providence, where he coached three

seasons before being fired last March.

Davis went 19-14 and reached the NIT in his first season at

Providence, but the Friars went 8-28 in Big East play over the next

two seasons.
