After resigning as Alabama's defensive line coach on Friday, Bo Davis is reportedly being investigated by the NCAA for potential recruiting violations.
Per Matt Zenitz of AL.com, Davis has been "accused of visiting multiple out-of-state recruits during a period when coaches aren't allowed any contact with recruits."
Zenitz noted the NCAA contacted Alabama's compliance office, at which point Davis was "questioned and caught being dishonest before eventually resigning" on Friday.
At the time of Davis' resignation, Alabama head football coach Nick Saban issued a statement without providing details, per Zenitz: "Bo Davis has submitted his letter of resignation. We appreciate all the contributions he made to the program and wish him and his family the very best in the future."
A source told Zenitz that the allegations against Davis compared to those of former Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips, who resigned from the school in 2014 after he was photographed in a restaurant with a recruit during an official dead period.
The good news from Alabama's side, if this case is reminiscent of the Phillips case at Florida, is Davis' resignation could be enough to avoid further NCAA punishment. The Gators did not suffer any sanctions because of how swiftly they acted after learning of Phillips' infractions.
Even though Saban is the face of Alabama football, Davis has been an integral part of the Crimson Tide's recruiting process. He was named the SEC's top recruiter this year by 247Sports for his role in bringing in blue-chip prospects such as Ben Davis and Nigel Knott.
