Terry Davis joined the Bellarmine University baseball program in September of 2013 as assistant baseball coach. The former St. Catharine College assistant became the first addition to the staff of Coach Larry Owens.
Davis is Bellarmine baseball’s recruiting coordinator, and he oversees the Knights hitters and infielders. Davis has extensive camp/showcase experience throughout the Midwest and leads Bellarmine's baseball camp operations as well.
Davis has a wealth of experience as a coach and a recruiter. For the 10 years prior to coming to Bellarmine, he served on the staff at St. Catharine College, helping the Patriots make the move from a junior college to an NAIA member institution. During his tenure there, Davis served in a variety of roles primarily including recruiting coordinator, overseeing team defense and assisting in the development of the Patriot hitters. Davis was instrumental in the transition to NAIA by attracting high school and junior college transfers from all over the country that would allow the Patriots to compete on a national level as well as receive votes for the Top 25 in just their third year at the NAIA level.
During the five years that Davis was the recruiting coordinator at the NAIA level, he recruited 28 athletes who received All-Mid-South Conference first- or second-team honors. Davis was also instrumental in the development of 10 Patriots who moved on to play professional baseball, including the program’s first-ever big leaguer. Davis developed a reputation for hard work as well as the ability to build relationships with prospective student-athletes and their families.
In the summers, Davis has been an active camp director at the University of Kentucky and for Prep Baseball Report Kentucky. Davis has also served as a Group Leader for Demarini/Top 96 Showcases throughout the United States. In 2009, he was the head coach of the Fulton Railroaders of the KITTY League, and led the Railroaders to a third-place finish in the KIT League.
During his playing days, Davis helped Spalding University to the 2002 NAIA World Series and the program’s first-ever 50-win season. Davis then earned his bachelor’s degree from St. Catharine College in sports leadership with an overall GPA of 3.97. Davis was an East-West All-Star selection in high school and graduated from Spencer County High School.
Davis has a wife, Natalie.
