There’s a new coach at the helm of the Davis Wolves football program.

There’s a new coach at the helm of the Davis Wolves football program.

But the Davis faithful need not worry, as the new skipper is someone who is all too familiar with the tradition of the red and white.

Longtime coach Greg Parker will be stepping into the head coaching role next season for the Wolves, as he replaces Jody Weber, who retired from the position following this past year.

Parker has been a member of the Wolves coaching staff since 1997, and has been serving as the defensive coordinator for Davis since 2001.

“This is definitely an honor for me,” Parker said about being named as the new head coach. “Davis is a great place to coach, and it’s an even better place to raise a family.” 

The 2018 season will mark the first time in 20 years the Wolves will not be led by a Weber at the helm.

Jody Weber served 17 successful seasons at the helm of the Wolves, while his father Joe coached the team from 1998 until Jody took over in 2001.

Together the Weber family helped bring four state titles to the Wolves program, along with four state runner-up finishes as well. 

This season the Wolves advanced to the Class 2A state semifinals, falling against Washington. 

History will also be at stake during the 2018 season for the Wolves, who can set a new state record for consecutive playoff appearances with 35 should they make the postseason.

Davis tied the state record set by Thomas last season at 34 straight years of playoff football. Thomas set the record from 1953-1987.
