Scott Davenport

Head Men's Basketball Coach - Bellarmine University

Scott Davenport is the 11th coach in Bellarmine University men's basketball history.  Within six years of his hiring, he took Bellarmine all the way to the top by leading the Knights to the 2011 NCAA Division II Tournament national championship. For his efforts, he was named national Coach of the Year by two different organizations: the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the Division II Bulletin.


Prior to joining Bellarmine, Davenport served nine years as an assistant coach at the University of Louisville under national championship-winning Hall of Fame coaches Denny Crum and Rick Pitino. Before heading to Louisville, Davenport spent 10 seasons as the head boys' coach at Ballard High School, where he won a state championship in 1988 and coached two future NBA players in DeJuan Wheat and Allan Houston.


A Louisville native, Davenport and his wife, Sharon, have two sons, Russ and Doug, who are both Bellarmine graduates.

Each year dozens of area businesses and community groups take part in the ClarkFEST Parade.  The Parade travels down Eastern Boulevard.  All types of entries are welcome: floats, marching bands, school sports teams, drill teams, strolling musicians, jugglers, dancers, antique vehicles, classic cars, large animal units. Go for it! Be creative.
