According to Sports Illustrated, Davis was addressing a booster club in Melbourne Florida when he made the controversial comments.
"I've always wanted to work with Will," 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."
He made the comparison in contrast to how much he liked working under Will Muschamp, the current Gators head coach.
Saban addressed the comments yesterday, calling Davis' qoute "terribly disappointing". He then told reporters that while he's demanding of his staff, he tries to do right by anyone who works for him.
Davis worked under Saban from 2005-2008 with the Miami Dolphins and at Alabama. This blog doesn't think there will ever be a reunion between the two men.
Davis is also not the first in the coaching profession to criticize Saban. Earlier this year, Vanderbilt coach James Franklin referred to him as "Nicky Satan".
Of course, Saban is at this time the most successful college football coach in the land, with the most dominant program.
Davis played at Utah in 1979 as an offensive lineman. He started his coaching career at Wisconsin in 1983.
