Former University of Alabama assistant coach Bo Davis was found to have acted “unethically” by the NCAA and received a two-year show cause, the organization released Friday.

The Division I Committee on Infractions panel found that Davis provided “false or misleading information about impermissible recruiting contacts.” The group also stated that Davis “knowingly committed a recruiting violation” when he had contact with four prospective student-athletes at their school set up through an Alabama booster.

Alabama received a public reprimand and censure, a withholding of his replacement (Karl Dunbar) from off-campus recruiting, telephone contact from April 22, 2016 through May 31, 2016 and a $5,000 fine and a disassociation from the booster who was deemed to help set up the meeting.

Davis received a two-year show cause from April 14, 2017 through April 13, 2019 (Davis currently is the defensive line coach for Texas at San Antonio).
