Tim Davis, a former offensive line coach for the Gophers under Tim Brewster, made headlines this week when he called Alabama head coach Nick Saban "the devil himself." Sounds like Davis, now the offensive line coach at Florida, at least knows not to hunt a bear with a pellet gun. Per

Tim Davis, the Gators' offensive line coach, made the remarks about Saban while comparing him to Florida coach Will Muschamp during a booster club meeting Tuesday.

Davis and Muschamp both worked as assistants under Saban with the NFL's Miami Dolphins. In an attempt to compliment Muschamp, Davis likened the Gators' offensive approach to that of Saban, who has led Alabama to consecutive BCS championships.

"I've always wanted to work with Will [Muschamp]," Davis said. "Will's got a plan. Will coached under the devil himself for seven years. I only did three. He did seven. And his DNA is not any different than Nick."
