Sources: Manny Diaz staying at Texas

By David Ubben

Texas defensive coordinator Manny Diaz is staying put, pulling out of consideration to become Florida International's new head coach.

From our news story:
A source close to Diaz said he decided to stay at Texas because he's excited about the program's future. The source went on to say Diaz wants to get the defense back where it was as one of the nation's best.

Good move from Diaz. He has the personnel to get this defense back to where it once was, and his predecessor left to become the head coach at Florida. You know, big Florida. Diaz doesn't have Will Muschamp's experience, but he can get a better job eventually than FIU, even though it's back near his home in South Florida.
