Quinshad Davis is coming back to Chapel Hill.

The former North Carolina wide receiver, who played from 2012 to 2015, is returning to UNC to work as a graduate assistant with the football team, as first reported by Ross Martin of InsideCarolina.

Davis will work with the offense and wide receivers, who are coached by Gunter Brewer.

Davis, who played high school football in Gaffney, S.C., left North Carolina as one of the most productive wide receivers in its history. He finished his career with 205 catches for 2,614 yards and 25 touchdowns. Those stats rank second, third and first in North Carolina history, respectively.

As a senior, Davis was a part of the 2015 team that went 11-3 and advanced to the ACC Championship Game. He also finished his career as a perfect passer, going 4-4 with four touchdowns on trick plays.

Davis went undrafted in the 2016 NFL Draft but signed with the Detroit Lions afterward. The Lions waived him in September 2016. Davis also briefly signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League in April 2017 and was released two months later.
