Davis played for a bit in the NFL playing with four teams. he will be seen in the sidelines as the Fighting Illini Radio Network sideline reporter. Carey Davis was a member of the 2001 Big Ten Championship Team and played in the Sugar Bowl. he too will cover games from the sidelines for all home and away Illini football games.
