La. Tech names Diaz defensive coordinator
RUSTON, La. (AP) Louisiana Tech head football coach Skip Holtz says he's hired Manny Diaz as his defensive coordinator.
Diaz comes to Tech after serving in the same position for two-plus seasons at Texas, where he was fired two games into last season.
This marks Diaz' fourth defensive coordinator job, having held the same position at Middle Tennessee and Mississippi State before joining the Longhorns in 2011.
