Link Davis, Head Coach
Campus: Plano West Senior High School, Shepton High School
College: University of Central of Oklahoma
High School: Cleveland, OK
Plano West High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Link Davis as our new men's and women's Varsity Wrestling Coach. This is inspiring news for Plano Wrestling as Davis is a well-respected coach in the scholastic, collegiate, and World/Olympic wrestling community.
Davis's previous college coaching experience is well documented. He served as a head wrestling coach at Emmanuel College NCAA DII program, building both women's and men’s teams to regional and national programs. Under Davis' guidance, Emmanuel women teams have finished in the top 5 and have produced many All-Americans and National Champions. Before Emmanuel, Davis was an associate head wrestling coach for both teams at Oklahoma City University for seven years. He had helped build the Stars wrestling program into a national powerhouse. At OCU, the women’s team won two consecutive WCWA Women's national team titles, and they finished second at the national tournament the following season. OCU women's wrestlers won eight individual WCWA national titles in three seasons, and four OCU women wrestlers qualified for the Olympic Trials.
Davis, about his coming to Plano West High School, says, "I am coming to Plano looking for student-athletes who are wanting to wrestle at the highest level possible, to showcase their wrestling abilities beyond a high school and college environment." Thank Janis Williams, Jeff Smith, and the search committee for being patient with this process. I also want to thank Coach Jake McIntire as well keeping things going this summer.
I am excited to see what the future has for the WOLF PACK FAMILY!!
As a college wrestler, Davis was a member of University Central Oklahoma's 1996 NCAA Division II runner-up squad.
He is married to Kristie Davis, a two-time World champion and nine-time World medalist in women's freestyle wrestling, and a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. They have three children - Kayla (23), Bryleigh (19), and Lilly (12).
