Diaz leaves MSU for Texas

Filling a critical need on a coaching staff that went through a major shakeup after a 5-7 season, Texas hired Mississippi State defensive coordinator Manny Diaz to do the same job with the Longhorns.Diaz replaces Will Muschamp, who left Texas after three seasons to become the head coach at Florida. Diaz inherits a defense that struggled badly in Texas’ first losing season since 1997.

“Texas is a place that when coaches around the country get talking, it’s hard to get through a conversation without the Longhorns coming up,” Diaz said. (January 6, 2011, Page 6)
