"It is great to be back at Northwood University," said Davidson. "I appreciate very much Dr. Tom Duncan and Dr. Kristin Stehouwer's trust in me to move athletics forward. This is an exciting time to be a part of NU Florida and I share Dr. Duncan's vision to grow this campus and I look forward to athletics being an integral part of that growth. We plan to ensure that our student athletes will continue to have a positive experience that they will remember for a lifetime. Our energy will be focused on growth and development of current and new athletic programs and facilities so that we will be competitive in all areas of athletics," he said.
During his playing time at Northwood, Davidson was a three-point specialist on the basketball team, graduating second all-time in three-pointers and was a member of the school's first ever national tournament team.
