Report: Bo Davis expected to remain at Texas despite pursuit from LSU

When LSU fired defensive line coach Jimmy Lindsey alongside most of the on-field defensive staff — including defensive coordinator Matt House on Wednesday, and it wasn’t a secret who most fans wanted as his replacement.

Texas defensive line coach Bo Davis has been a hopeful addition to the staff since even before Brian Kelly announced these staff moves, and when he did, Davis became an obvious candidate to replace Lindsey.

However, according to a report from On Texas Football, that’s not likely to happen. Davis is expected to remain with the Longhorns despite being heavily pursued by the Tigers.

According to a report from Football Scoop, LSU considered hiring Davis of equal or greater priority to the defensive coordinator hire.

A former player at LSU, Davis is a well-traveled and experienced defensive line coach having held that role at Alabama and Texas as well as with the Detroit Lions.

He began his career as a graduate assistant at LSU in 1995 and would later return to serve as the assistant strength and conditioning coach on Nick Saban’s staff in 2002.
