Former Alabama defensive line coach Bo Davis resigned Friday as a result of being investigated by the NCAA for potential impermissible contact with recruits, according to AL.com’s Matt Zenitz.
Davis is accused of visiting multiple out-of-state recruits, according to Zenitz, during a period when coaches aren’t allowed any contact with recruits. A source told Zenitz that none of those recruits ended up signing with Alabama.
The source also told Zenitz that Davis was caught being dishonest about the allegations after the NCAA contacted Alabama’s compliance office.
Davis, whose contract ran through 2017, was in his second stint as Alabama’s defensive line coach under Nick Saban. After helping the Crimson Tide sign another No. 1 recruiting class in the nation, he was named the SEC’s top recruiter by 247Sports in February.
