LSU expanded its commitment to comprehensive student-athlete education, well-being, and development with the promotion of Tam Davis to Director of Player Relations for the football program, the school announced on March 23, 2021.
Davis will help develop and implement support for LSU football players in a variety of areas, including educational programs related to social issues, personal development, success in the classroom and community, and preparation for life after football.
Davis, who previously served as coordinator of defensive operations for the LSU football team, becomes only the second woman in the Southeastern Conference to hold the title of Director of Player Relations.
Davis will work with a variety of areas within the program to ensure the continued comprehensive education of football student-athletes off the field. Her responsibilities will include serving as the liaison for players on a daily basis with the campus community, the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes and the LSU Athletics administration. She will also organize community outreach opportunities for student-athletes and the coaching staff, while also assisting players’ transition from football to the workforce after graduation.
Davis, a 2002 graduate from Southern University with a bachelor of science degree in microbiology, has served on the LSU staff for the last 15 years. She got her start with the Tigers as an intern in the LSU recruiting department under Sharon Lewis.
