Butch Davis' son to transfer from UNC

North Carolina backup quarterback Drew Davis, the son of former head coach Butch Davis, has decided to transfer to Coffeyville Community College where he will begin practice this fall, the school announced on Wednesday. Davis joined the Tar Heels prior to the start of the 2012 season and redshirted.

“I appreciate the opportunity Coach [Larry] Fedora gave me to be a member of the team,” Davis said in a prepared statement. “I’ve met so many great people during my time in Chapel Hill and I will miss seeing them on a daily basis. I’m looking forward to joining the team in Coffeyville and competing for the quarterback position. Coffeyville has a great track record of taking incoming transfers and preparing them for their next opportunity. I’m looking forward to continuing my growth as a quarterback.”

Davis was a starter for three seasons at East Chapel Hill High School where he threw for more than 3,500 yards and 30 touchdowns as a senior in 2011.

“We wish Drew nothing but the best of luck as he continues his career at Coffeyville,” Fedora said in a statement. “He is a great kid, a great teammate and we enjoyed having him in our program.”
