Diaz removing his name from FIU job search

Texas defensive coordinator Manny Diaz is removing his name from consideration for the FIU vacancy, a source told CBSSports.com Tuesday afternoon.

The 38-year-old Miami native--the son of former Miami mayor Manny Diaz--has decided against returning home because he felt the timing was not right. The source said that the coach is determined to help the Longhorns get back on top of the college football world.

In 2011, Diaz moved on to Texas, where he led the top defense in the Big 12 as the Longhorns ranked first in the conference in total defense, rushing defense and pass defense. However, this fall, the 8-4 Longhorns struggled on defense, ranking No. 75 in scoring defense and No. 72 in total defense as they were plagued by injuries and all sorts of tackling issues.
