There have been plenty of interesting twists and turns surrounding who would become the Alabama Crimson Tide‘s new defensive line coach. Ed Orgeron was the most interesting name that was being floated around and those rumors proved to be false, but now it looks like a man familiar with Nick Saban will be taking the job.
According to Shannon Terry, Tim Watts and the staff over at BamaOnline.com, Bo Davis will be joining the Alabama staff and leading the defensive line.

It was previously reported that Davis was set to join the USC Trojans staff, but it appears that stop will be short-lived.
Davis, who spent the last three seasons coaching under Mack Brown at Texas, will replace Chris Rumph. Interestingly enough, Rumph left Alabama to join the Texas Longhorns staff as the defensive line coach under new head coach Charlie Strong.
As an assistant under Alabama head coach Nick Saban, Davis was a member of the coaching staffs at LSU, the Miami Dolphins and Alabama.
He will now return to the SEC, where he spent his playing career as a member of the LSU Tigers.
