Black Heart Gold Pants can't help but note the many similarities between their former OC and their presumed next OC:
There are any number of reasons why Ferentz would look to Davis as his next offensive coordinator (and why we firmly believe he'll be named in the next couple of days). The stats are impressive if void of context. The track record of developing quarterbacks is virtually unparalleled, even if those quarterbacks came with a constellation of recruiting stars next to their names. The resume is full of big football programs, if lacking the sort of across-the-board winning we'd hope to see. The recruiting benefits of a coordinator who grew up, played college ball, and spent the vast majority of his adult life coaching in Texas and Louisiana are obvious, especially for a staff that just lost one of its top connections into Pennsylvania and Ohio.
But the way he's handled himself as the shield for Mack Brown for all those years, just as O'Keefe soaked up so much criticism that would otherwise be directed at Ferentz without a cross word, is why he's the inevitable choice. In retrospect, it makes too much sense.
