Alabama AD awaiting word from NCAA for rules violations
Alabama athletic director Bill Battle said the university is still awaiting word from the NCAA’s findings on Bo Davis’ violations, according to Aaron Suttles of TideSports.com, who spoke to Battle at the SEC’s spring meetings in Destin.
Davis resigned from Alabama after an alleged impermissible contact with a high school player, and the university hired Karl Dunbar for Davis’ vacant position.
Battle updated the status Wednesday:
“I don’t know what … we haven’t got the final report from the NCAA,” Battle told Rivals.com. “I know that Bo spoke to the NCAA after we did and he resigned. We have determined there were violations and felt like it was in our best interest to separate.
“I know that Bo spoke to the NCAA in hopes that he could reduce any penalty that might come to him. We haven’t heard what might come to us. We’re still waiting for those answers … It will be up to the NCAA to decide what they think about our response.”
Davis had been with Nick Saban for a while, even coaching alongside him in 2006 with the Miami Dolphins. Davis also spent three years with Saban at LSU as an assistant strength and conditioning coach.
