Oklahoma City Univ. adds Davis to coaching staff



OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City University's wrestling program has added Link Davis as an assistant coach after a stint as assistant under OCU coach Archie Randall at El Reno, Okla.

Davis spent the past year at El Reno as an assistant. El Reno won its 11th consecutive Class 4A state title this past year.

At OCU, Davis will work with the 141- and 149-pound wrestlers and every aspect of the program.

"It's a great opportunity just to be in a college setting and to be able with Coach Randall and Tyrone Lewis," Davis said.

Davis had been a head coach at Broken Arrow, Okla., from 2002-05, going 41-19 in duals, after being an assistant there for two years. Davis coached four-time state champion Brandon Tucker and three-time state champ Shane Vernon with the Tigers. Broken Arrow won the Class 5A dual state title in 2002.

"His program at Broken Arrow was among the tops in Class 5A," Randall said. "To have his knowledge, expertise and most importantly, his enthusiasm are important to the success of this program."

Before then, Davis was also head coach at Poteau, Okla., and an assistant coach at Enid, Okla.

On the junior level, Davis coached with the Oklahoma cadet program since 1997. The Oklahoma team won the national cadet title in 2000 under Davis' guidance.

Collegiately, Davis wrestled at Central Oklahoma from 1995-97 and Missouri Valley in 1993-94. Davis wrestled at the prep level in Cleveland, Okla., and became a cadet national runner-up.

The Stars will wrestle for the first time since the 1930s. OCU opens with the Lindenwood Open on Oct. 27, then wrestles its first dual against Oklahoma on Nov. 4.
