His leadership and commitment to development make him a perfect fit for our club,” said Patrick Barry, President of SLSG. “Brad has the tradition of this city and this club in his DNA. As the landscape of soccer changes in this country, I cannot think of a better person to represent SLSG and St. Louis into the future.”
Davis was born in St. Charles and developed in the Scott Gallagher youth system before attending Chaminade High School and Saint Louis University. He would play two collegiate seasons with 40 appearances and 21 goals scored before being selected as the third overall pick in the 2002 MLS SuperDraft.

Davis currently holds a USSF B license and returns to St. Louis Scott Gallagher after serving as the Technical Director at affiliate club Kansas City Scott Gallagher for the past three years.
“First of all, I would like to thank Kansas City Scott Gallagher’s staff and members for the opportunity to be a part of their organization over the last 3 years. I am extremely excited to return home and be a part of my childhood club,” said Davis. “St. Louis Scott Gallagher was a major reason for the success that I had as a player throughout my professional career, both on and off the field. I look forward to bringing those experiences to this already exceptional staff as we will continue the tradition of making SLSG one of the best clubs in the country.”
