    NCAA upholds penalty against former Alabama assistant Bo Davis


    Quote
    NCAA denied an appeal from Bo Davis on Thursday and upheld a two-year show-cause penalty it placed upon the former Alabama assistant in April that runs through April 13, 2019.

    According to an NCAA release, Davis argued that the show-cause order should expire two years from the date he resigned at Alabama, which was April 29, 2016, rather than two years from when the NCAA ruled on his case, which was this past April.

    However, the penalty was upheld. That means Davis, who is now UTSA's defensive line coach, can't do any off-campus recruiting through April 13, 2019.

    Davis knowingly committed a recruiting violation when he met with four prospective recruits before coaches were allowed to have such contact with those players during a meeting that the NCAA says was pre-arranged by a "booster."

    Davis then provided false or misleading information about the meeting and the booster's involvement when questioned by Alabama and the NCAA, according to the NCAA.

    Alabama, though, didn't face any penalties beyond three self-imposed penalties -- a $5,000 fine, disassociation from the "booster" and restricting Davis and his replacement, Karl Dunbar, from off-campus recruiting or telephone contact with recruits from April 22, 2016 through May 31, 2016.
