Davis Assumes New Post at El Camino
Jeff Davis has been named El Camino Real High’s freshman and sophomore basketball coach.
The former El Camino basketball and baseball player has been a member of the El Camino coaching staff for more than five years, serving as an assistant on the freshman and sophomore teams, an assistant on the varsity and head junior varsity coach.
“I’m looking forward to getting the team back on track, like it was in 1982-83,” Davis said. “We have an outstanding team with smart players who have good attitudes.”
In the 1982-83 season, Davis was an assistant varsity coach. He helped Coach Mike McNulty turn around the team’s dismal 1981-82 league record of 2-8 into 8-2. The team was co-league champion.
Davis, 25, has also coached basketball in the USA Development League, the Superstar League, and the Moorpark College and John Wooden summer camps. He has run El Camino’s summer league team for four years.
Most recently, Davis served as assistant sports information director for women’s sports at UCLA.
