Davis was a pivotal part of Alabama’s staff, coaching up what is considered by many, one of the most talented defensive line units in college football history with the 2015 group.
On top of his general football impact, he was also a major recruiter for the Crimson Tide, winning 2015’s Recruiter of the Year with his dominance in the state of Mississippi, a state Alabama has had trouble recruiting in the past but this year adding three prospects from THe Magnolia State (Nigel Knott, Raekwon Davis and Scott Lashley).
This is a big loss for the Tide but they will continue to focus on the goal at hand, winning another title and will likely be in search of a replacement before fall camp begins in August.
