Greg McElroy offered some insight into the Austin Davis situation at Auburn, and the former offensive coordinator was apparently in a difficult position.

“Based on what I’ve gathered, Austin Davis was unfit for the position and was going to be relieved of his duties if he didn’t step down,” McElroy, the ESPN commentator and WJOX co-host, said on “The Paul Finebaum Show.”

Davis resigned earlier this week just 6 weeks after he took the job. Coach Bryan Harsin and Davis both said Monday the newly hired coordinator and quarterbacks coach was leaving for personal reasons. Davis said he has decided “to step away from coaching football.”

“My decision to resign is 100% based on personal reasons,” Davis said in a statement. “After more than a decade in the NFL with the daily grind as a player and coach I’ve realized how much I miss my family and my desire to spend more time with them.”

Davis became an NFL assistant coach in 2019 after a seven-year NFL career playing for 5 teams. He took on the new role of quarterbacks coach in 2020 after one year as an offensive assistant for Seattle.

Harsin hired Davis on Dec. 18 to replace the fired offensive coordinator Mike Bobo after a 6-6 regular season before Auburn suffered a loss to Houston in the Birmingham Bowl.
