Paul Hilton "Butch" Davis, Jr. (born November 17, 1951 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma) is the current head football coach of the North Carolina Tar Heels. Previously, Davis was the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes and later the Cleveland Browns of the NFL.

Davis was born on November 17, 1951 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, to Paul and Pat Davis. He attended high school at Bixby High School, in Bixby, Oklahoma, where he was an All-State fullback and defensive end for the Spartans and graduated in 1970. After graduation from high school, he attended the University of Arkansas and played defensive end for the Razorbacks. Due to an unfortunate knee injury, Davis was sidelined after his freshman year. However, he would become a student assistant with the Razorbacks throughout the rest of his college days. After graduation from college, he had several assistant coaching positions at several high schools including Fayetteville High School in 1973, Pawhuska High School from 1974–1975, and Charles Page High School(Sand Springs, OK) from 1976–1977. He landed his first head coaching job at Tulsa Rogers High School in 1978.

After that, Butch began a successful 15-year association with Jimmy Johnson, first as a receivers and tight ends coach at Oklahoma State for the Cowboys, then later as defensive line coach at the University of Miami. During that time, the Hurricanes won the 1987 National Championship.
