It did not take long for UTSA Head Coach Frank Wilson to find a new defensive line coach. Just over week after Eric Henderson departed the staff to the NFL, former Alabama Defensive Line Coach Bo Davis was announced as his replacement Tuesday.
Davis is widely considered one of the top defensive line coaches in the nation as well as one of the country’s best recruiters. He most recently coached at Alabama from 2014-2015.
Last April, however, Alabama parted ways with Davis amid alleged NCAA infractions. The reported infractions (impressible contact) were relatively minor in nature.
Davis was Scout.com’s 2016 National Recruiter of the Year. He comes to UTSA with an impressive resume. He was a former lineman at LSU, he coached at Alabama (twice), Texas, and in the NFL.
In a press release, Wilson called the hiring of Davis “a coup for UTSA.”
In a statement, Davis said the following: “I am very grateful for this opportunity to be a part of the Roadrunner family. I’d like to thank Coach Wilson and (Director of Athletics) Lynn Hickey for giving me the chance to join a great coaching staff at UTSA. I am looking forward to an exciting future in San Antonio.”
Neither Davis nor Wilson were available for direct comment.
