The Post-Tribune has learned that Jim Davidson has been offered and accepted the job as Munster’s next girls basketball coach.

Davidson’s hiring is pending approval at Munster’s next school board meeting on July 14.

Davidson previously was Munster’s coach during the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons. He went 10-12 in his first season and 11-10 in his last year.

Davidson replaces Matt Backs, who went 45-61 in five seasons with the Mustangs, including an 8-13 mark last year.

Attempts to reach Davidson on Thursday night were unsuccessful.
