Davis graduated from the Fourths and Under 19's to debut in 1964. He played just six games for the year, but broke into the side in Round 17 and held his spot through the finals series, playing in the Grand Final win when Brian Leahy was injured.
He ran second in the Reserves Best and Fairest in his rookie season despite missing six games for senior duty, and started his career with a bang by kicking a goal with his first kick but then didn't manage another for eight years. Instead of a goal sneak he turned into a reliable defender off the half-back flank or in the back pocket.
Davis was appointed coach of West Gambier in 1974, before joining Berwick in 1976. He returned to the Demons as Reserves coach in 1977 and Under 19's coach in 1978. He had coached Oakleigh YCW in 1967 due his playing career.
He served as an assistant to Carl Ditterich in 1979 and has been credited as the senior coach for the Round 8, 1979 match where Ditterich was suspended and not allowed to enter the field during breaks.
Coached Frankston in 1980 but was sacked midway through the season after three wins in 10 games. Later coached the Hawthorn Under 19s. He worked as country development officer with the Hawks between from 1982 to 1985, and as recruiting manager between 1986 and 1995. From 2005 to 2009 he worked as a part time recruiting officer with Melbourne.
