USC Reportedly To Lose Newly-Hired Defensive Line Coach Bo Davis To Alabama

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Nearly one week after hiring Bo Davis away from Texas to coach the defensive line at USC, Steve Sarkisian may be in search mode once again.

Per, Davis is set to join the Alabama staff.

It will be somewhat of a homecoming for Davis, who previously coached under Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa, Ala. from 2007 to 2010.

In 2011, Davis left the Crimson Tide to join the Longhorns coaching staff where he coached defensive tackles from 2011 to 2013.

With Davis’ arrival, the Trojans figured to receive a boost in their pursuit of prospects in the southern region of the United States.

Should Davis wind up a member of the Crimson Tide as reported, it will shut the door on a whirlwind 24 hours.

On Sunday night, it was reported Ed Orgeron was closing in on becoming the next defensive line coach at Alabama.

Bruce Feldman later refuted the Oregron report on Monday and here we stand.

Losing Davis is another blow for Sarkisian, who initially had his sights set on luring Tosh Lupoi out of Washington.  An NCAA investigation into possible wrongdoings by Lupoi quickly put an end to that.

In joing Lane Kiffin, Davis is the second former Trojan coach, if you wish to call him that, who will now be a member of the Crimson Tide coaching staff.

    U$C is a joke, why would anyone want to coach for a program that fires the coaches at airport parking lots?


      Why are you even on this site?

    • Pridenpoise

      Kiffin is the joke, and so are you for defending this has been.

    • Gabe Ponce

      Your a joke.


    Paves the way for the return of CEO?

    • Matthew Moreno

      That is unlikely.


        But not impossible right?

        • Matthew Moreno

          Well, I suppose not. But I would consider it nearly impossible.

            You think Sara will go into the south again?

          • Michael Castillo

            Rumors swirling about Georgia’s DL coach, Chris Wilson, who interviewed with Bama.

          • ANTHONYinCALI

            That’d be cool; what happened to bamas old DL coach?

          • anno nimus

            He left Bama to coach Texas, so basically Bama and texas swapped DL coaches.

          • Matthew Moreno

            He may or may not be looking in and around the hedges.

    Well, that’s awfully embarrassing for USC. But if you have a coach that’s going to be wooed by another program, it’s probably for the best that it happens now than later, since there’s still time to get a new coach before the dead period in recruiting ends.

    And, no I don’t want to hear all of these idiots start the Coach O talk. He’s not coming back. Get over it.

    Just another screwup by Haden! He made the deal with Davis last week, and apparently didn’t get the contract signed and finished? What an embarrassment.. Haden has no business as our AD!

    • Matthew Moreno

      I’m not entirely sure that’s how it unfolded.

      But if that is true, a signed contract wouldn’t have made much of a difference. Coaches get out of contracts with relative ease.

  • anno nimus

    so much for that “everyone wants to be a Trojan” crap. LMAO

    • Matthew Moreno

      It appears that it certainly applies to you, though.

      • anno nimus

        Thank you Matt, you just proved my point.

    • Pridenpoise

      It’s not the Coaches we care about, it’s the players Anus, or whatever your name is, now go find a bridge to hide under troll.
