Davis takes the defensive line

USC coach Steve Sarkisian announced the hiring of defensive line coach Bo Davis on Tuesday. Davis comes to USC from Texas, where he most recently coached the Longhorns' defensive tackles.

USC coach Steve Sarkisian has made the final hire of his nine-assistant Trojan coaching staff.

Sarkisian announced the addition of Bo Davis as the new defensive line coach on Tuesday.

Davis spent the last three years coaching defensive tackles at Texas.

"It is great to welcome Bo to USC," Sarkisian said in a statement released by the university. "He is one of the outstanding defensive line coaches in the country and makes for a great addition to our coaching staff."

Prior to his three year stint at Texas, Davis coached under Nick Saban at Alabama, LSU, and the Miami Dolphins. He was with the Tide from 2007-10 as the defensive line coach. In 2006 Davis went to the NFL with Saban as an assistant defensive line coach and strength and conditioning assistant. From 2002-05 Davis was at LSU, first under Saban then spent his final season there under Les Miles. He spent his four seasons at LSU as an assistant strength and conditioning coach.

The hiring of Davis officially puts an end to the quest to bring former defensive line and interim coach Ed Orgeron back to USC.
