Davids, who has been touted as a future Springbok coach, has been linked with the vacant job at the Cheetahs, who also play in the Pro14.
Netwerk24 also reported that Sharks assistant coach Sean Everitt is in the running to replace Davids at the Kings.
The Kings have already signed lock Jerry Sexton, brother of current World Player of the Year, Johnny Sexton, for next season’s campaign as they look to improve on the two wins from 21 outings in 2019.
