Bo Davis is back involved with football.
After things turned sour for him at Alabama, the former Tide defensive line coach landed a position with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an intern. Michael DiRocco, ESPN’s beat writer for the Jaguars, covered the story on Wednesday as the team prepares for training camp on Thursday.

Davis, an alumnus of Louisiana State University (1993), joined Nick Saban’s staff in 2007. He would be a critical part of Alabama’s first national championship in 2009, since the 1992 season. Davis left Alabama for Texas in 2010, linking up with head coach Mack Brown for the next four years.
He returned to Tuscaloosa in 2014, establishing one of the best defensive lines in college football and his own name as an elite recruiter. Davis helped the Tide secure a Southeastern Conference championship, while earning a trip to the first-ever College Football Playoff. He molded the likes of A’Shawn Robinson, Jarran Reed, Da’Shawn Hand, Dalvin Tomlinson and others in 2015, guiding Alabama to having the best run defense (75.7 yards/game) and securing a national championship.
Davis was forced to resign from the program in April, as a result of being guilty of recruiting violations.
