He is also an analyst for the NFL Network, and has previously worked with TBS, ESPN, CBS, The Golf Channel and Sun Sports.

Davis was an All-SEC defensive back for the Tennessee Volunteers from 1982 to 1986, though he went undrafted in the 1987 NFL Draft. He earned a master's degree in history while a student at Tennessee.

Davis was born in Elizabethton, Tennessee, but moved with his family to New Paltz, New York, when he was two years old. His father, Franklin, was a high school football and basketball coach.Davis played football, basketball and baseball at New Paltz High School. He played quarterback, defensive back, and kicker for the football team. A dual-threat quarterback, he passed for 742 yards and six touchdowns, and ran for 738 yards and eleven touchdowns his senior year. He also registered four interceptions on defense, and completed 15 of 20 extra points and a field goal as a kicker. He earned All-State honors his junior and senior years.

Davis chose to play college football at Tennessee, in part because it was the school where one of his childhood heroes, Condredge Holloway, had played. After redshirting during his first season in 1982, he worked his way into the starting lineup during the 1983 season. He had interceptions against Pittsburgh and LSU early in the season, and a key interception that helped preserve Tennessee's 7–0 win against Rutgers. He registered 12 tackles in the Vols' 41–34 win over Alabama, and had 5 tackles and recovered a fumble in the team's loss to Auburn. He finished the season with 58 tackles (39 solo) and a team-leading 4 interceptions.

Although he played through the pain and finished the game, he missed the next three games.

He finished the year with 83 tackles and 4 interceptions.He was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll at the end of the season.

Undrafted in 1987, Davis signed with the Dallas Cowboys as a free agent, but did not make the team.

Davis graduated with a degree in political science prior to his senior year with the Tennessee football team, and subsequently earned a master's degree in history. After getting cut by the Cowboys, he turned to broadcasting. One of the first games he called was Tennessee's 1987 Orange-and-White Game (an annual scrimmage played at the end of spring practice), in which he worked alongside long-time Vol Network play-by-play commentator John Ward.

He has also been a frequent commentator on The Golf Channel, appearing on program's such as Viewer's Forum and the Grey Goose 19th Hole.

Davis joined Fox as an analyst in 2006. He called the 2007 BCS National Championship Game with Barry Alvarez and Thom Brennaman, and the 2008 and 2009 games with only Brennaman. He and Brennaman also called Appalachian State's upset of Michigan in 2007 on the Big Ten Network.

Davis is featured within NFL Network’s exclusive coverage of the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine. Following the NFL Scouting Combine, Davis is an analyst on Path to the Draft, which provides in-depth analysis on prospective draft choices and a look at each NFL team’s needs during the off-season with host Paul Burmeister and Mike Mayock. From 2007 to 2009, Davis was an analyst on NFL Network’s College Football Now, a show that brought fans a daily dose of college football highlights, news and analysis. In addition to his duties in studio at NFL Network, Davis also served as a game analyst for NFL Network’s broadcasts of the 2007 Texas Bowl. From 2007–2008, Davis served as analyst for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason schedule.

Davis joined the Fox postgame show in October 2008, appearing with Jimmy Johnson and Terry Bradshaw. He appeared with Chris Rose, Barry Switzer, and Jimmy Johnson on December 7, 2008 for the BCS results shows. For the 2013 NFL season, Fox pairs Davis with Gus Johnson on regional telecasts.
