It's resulted in a busy couple of months for the former England skipper who has been throwing himself into preseason preparations from a playing perspective, but then focusing on coaching work once the training sessions are over.
Davies has been keen to stress that there is no pressure on Tindall and that he'll be allowed to develop the coaching element of his contribution at his own pace.
And, to date, Tindall has been impressing everyone with the progress he has made.
"Mike's doing very well, I'm delighted with all the coaches really. We've spent our time wisely so far and everything is coming along quite well.
"I'm not putting any pressure on him in that regard, to allow him time to get a feel for things, but he's pushing things forward very nicely and pretty quickly.
"And having met him and spoken to people who know him, I'm not surprised really, because of his rugby knowledge."
Tindall has, of course, enjoyed a glittering playing career and Davies can see him being just as successful in the coaching arena.
"This is the next phase of his career and I don't see why he can't evolve and develop into a real top-end coach.
"I think that some players are just very natural and have a lot of natural ability at the game, and those sometimes are the players that don't always make the best coaches.
"But Tins is somebody who has worked extremely hard at his game technically over the years, and is very confident in every area of his own game.
"And he knows what it takes and how hard you have to work to step up through the levels and then make a success of that too.
"So he's got that naturally, but I think most importantly when you look at potential coaches, I think you've got to look at the quality of the person.
"And if the quality of the person is right, in terms of their work ethic, their desire and their commitment, their ability and their motivation to develop themselves, then that's half the battle.
"And I think Tins exhibits all those qualities and I think he has done very well in a short space of time so far.
"He's got a big future in coaching and it will be great to see him continue to develop and progress here."
