Former Alabama assistant Bo Davis has been hired by the Detroit Lines to serve as their defensive line coach, the NFL team announced on Friday.

Davis, who held the same position with the Crimson Tide from 2007-10 and 2014-15, was fired by Nick Saban after being found responsible for NCAA violations. For his actions, he received a 2-year show cause penalty that expires on April 13, 2019, and the university fined itself $5,000.

Per SEC Country’s Marq Burnett, here is a complete list of penalties that were issued for Davis and the Crimson Tide football program:
