COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State standout Matt Davis, who also spent seven years in professional baseball, has been hired as Ohio Dominican's assistant baseball coach, said head coach Paul Page.
Davis helped lead the Buckeyes to three consecutive Big Ten titles from 2001-03 and was a First Team All-Big Ten selection following the 2003 season. Davis, a seventh-round draft pick by the Cleveland Indians in 2003, left OSU as the school's all-time leader in saves and also set the single-season appearance mark.
Davis spent parts of four seasons in the Indians' minor league system and also played in the White Sox system and with the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the Northern League for two years. He appeared in 286 games in seven years in the minors and recorded 67 saves.
After his playing career, Davis worked as the pitching coach at Mason High School and also as the assistant coach at nearby Upper Arlington High School. Recently, Davis spent two years as the head varsity baseball coach at Novinger High School in Missouri.
