About UC Davis football head coach Dan Hawkins

He has taken his family on vacation to Machu Picchu in Peru. Most recently put on a football clinic in Quito, Ecuador. He taught science, jumped out of airplanes, and coached football in 20 different countries.

For Dan Hawkins, who was introduced as football’s new head coach on November 28, 2016, those aren’t simply items to cross off a bucket list, they have been opportunities to learn. It’s that thirst for learning, and application of that knowledge, that brought Hawkins, a 1984 UC Davis alumnus who played and coached with legendary head coach Jim Sochor, back to his alma mater.

Hawkins, who also served as a college football studio analyst at ESPN in recent seasons, brings a unique depth of experience and innovative offensive approach back to his alma mater. During his career, Hawkins built Boise State to elite status on the college football landscape and coached in the Big XII at the University of Colorado.
