Vice President & Head Coach
Bear Davis is currently the Vice President & Head Coach of the Ohio Machine. Davis, a Hilliard High School alum, joined the Machine on June 24, 2013 when he was named the second head coach in club history. He was promoted to his current role on August 20, 2014. In 2014, Davis has led the Machine to a 8-6 regular season record and guided the team to its first-ever playoff appearance. The Machine’s six game improvement over its 2013 record is tied for the largest single-season turnaround in Major League Lacrosse history.
Under Davis, the Machine posted the top-ranked offense in Major League Lacrosse in 2014. The team ended the regular season with five straight wins, which tied for the longest winning streak in MLL this season. On offense, the Machine boasted four players that scored 27 or more goals, a feat that hadn’t been accomplished in the league since the 2004 season. Davis was the runner-up for the Brine Coach of the Year award this season.
Prior to joining the Machine full-time, Davis was the head boy’s lacrosse coach and associate athletic director at Archbishop Spalding High School (Md.). Davis took over at Archbishop Spalding after building the men’s lacrosse program at Robert Morris University over the span of seven seasons as the program’s first-ever head coach. Robert Morris led the NCAA in scoring offense for two straight seasons under Davis. Prior to Robert Morris, Davis helped start the Wheeling Jesuit men’s lacrosse program and guided the Cardinals to a No. 10 national ranking in 2003.
In addition to his responsibilities as head coach, Davis is instrumental in expanding the Machine’s ticket sales and community relations efforts.
Jon Harnett joined the Ohio Machine in December 2014 as an Account Executive. Harnett’s responsibilities include group and season ticket sales as well as customer service. He also helps plan and participates in community events on behalf of the Machine.
Before joining the Machine, Harnett was with the Cincinnati Bengals as Ticket Sales Representative from May 2013 to December 2014. As member of the Bengals ticket sales staff, Harnett was responsible for ticket sales, customer service and support for Ticket Office operations and game day initiatives.
Harnett graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Management. While at OWU, Harnett was a four-year member of the Battling Bishop’s football team, the 2012 NCAC champions. Originally from Greenwich, Connecticut he played varsity lacrosse in high school.
