UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor on Friday announced that he has named Sean Davis as the Roadrunners’ quarterbacks coach. 

A veteran of the UTSA staff since 2019, Davis served as a senior analyst for the offense in 2022 after spending the 2020 and 2021 seasons as an offensive analyst and the 2019 campaign as quality control for the offense. 

Davis has played a key role in the emergence of UTSA’s record-setting offense over the last two years. He has worked directly with the quarterbacks since his arrival on campus, helping develop Frank Harris into one of the top current signal callers in the collegiate ranks. 

In 2022, the Roadrunners finished 11-3, captured their second straight Conference USA championship and played in a bowl game for the third consecutive season. With the help of Davis’ guidance, Harris enjoyed a record-setting campaign under center, completing 328 of 471 passes (69.6%) for 4,063 yards and 32 TDs and a 160.7 passing efficiency, all school records. He added 602 rushing yards — a program record for a QB — and nine scores on the ground and was named C-USA Most Valuable Player first-team all-conference, the C-USA Championship Game MVP, a finalist for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award and a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award. 

Davis was a key member of the 2021 staff that helped guide UTSA to a 12-2 record, the program’s first league title and an appearance in the Frisco Bowl. Harris started all 14 contests, completing 263 of 398 passes (66.1%) for 3,177 yards and 27 TDs and rushing for 566 yards and six scores en route to honorable mention all-league accolades and being named a semifinalist for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose and Davey O’Brien Awards. 

In Davis’ first season on Jeff Traylor’s staff in 2020, he helped mentor a position room that saw four different quarterbacks see action with three earning starts. Harris made 10 starts and completed 159 of 250 passes (63.6%) for 1,630 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for 528 yards and nine TDs, while Josh Adkins and Lowell Narcisse each drew one start and passes for 270 and 417 yards, respectively, helping the Roadrunners to a 7-5 record and their first bowl appearance since 2016. 

Davis was quality control for the offense in his first year on the UTSA campus in 2019. The QB room was hit hard by injury when Harris went down in the fourth game for the season after throwing for 486 yards and rushing for 126. Narcisse took over the starting job and threw for 1,226 yards and eight touchdowns and rushed for 492 and four scores. 

Davis came to San Antonio after spending the 2018 season as offensive quality control at Wyoming. There, he worked with the quarterbacks and helped the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach generate the passing game plan. 

Davis was co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at UIW from 2013 to 2017, adding the title of recruiting coordinator in 2016. He mentored Trent Brittain, a three-year starter at quarterback and All-Southland Conference performer who was a member of the Jerry Rice Award Watch List and Preseason CFPA QB Watch List. The Cardinals broke then-program records for single-season passing yardage for three straight years under his guidance. 

Prior to his tenure at UIW, Davis was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks/wide receivers coach at Pasadena City College in California from 2010 to 2012. He helped develop five future NCAA Division I players and six all-conference performers during his time leading the offensive staff. 

Davis got his start in coaching in 2008 as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Crescenta Valley High School in La Crescenta, California. In his two years on the staff, the Falcons made back-to-back playoff appearances and captured the Pacific League Championship in 2008. He also developed the conference player of the year in 2009. 

An honorable mention All-America quarterback at Azusa Pacific in 2004, Davis was a three-year starter who passed for 3,812 yards and 22 touchdowns in his career. He helped lead the Cougars to three consecutive playoff appearances, including an 11-win campaign and the NAIA semifinals in 2004.   

Davis is a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he was a two-time all-district and honorable mention all-city quarterback at La Cueva High School. He threw for 2,461 yards and 12 touchdowns while leading the Bears to an 18-5 record over his final two seasons. 

He earned his bachelor’s degree in youth ministry in 2006 from Azusa Pacific. 

Davis and his wife, Stephanie, have two children, Beauden and Barrett.
