UT hires defensive tackles coach from Bama


Texas made its second coaching hire in three days, adding Nick Saban disciple Bo Davis as defensive tackles coach Tuesday.

Davis had been the defensive line coach at Alabama. He worked under Saban for eight of the last nine years at Alabama, LSU and the Miami Dolphins.

"He is a tremendous young coach who brings energy, enthusiasm and toughness to our program," Texas head coach Mack Brown said.

"He's a guy I've really respected and enjoyed getting to know," Davis said of Brown. "He and Coach Saban are legends in this sport. Just to have the chance to work with coaches like that is something any coach in America would want to experience."

On Sunday, Texas hired Darrell Wyatt as wide receivers coach/co-recruiting coordinator.

Coming off a disappointing 5-7 season, the Longhorns are still in the market for new offensive and defensive coordinators.
