Texas Fires Defensive Coordinator After Rout

AUTSIN, Texas (AP)   Texas has fired defensive coordinator Manny Diaz a day after one of the worst defensive performances in the history of the program.

Longhorns coach Mack Brown announced the move in a statement Sunday, and says that former Longhorns defensive coordinator and Syracuse coach Greg Robinson will replace Diaz.

Brown says: “Our performance on defense last night was unacceptable, and we need to change that.”

BYU ran for 550 yards, the most ever allowed by Texas, in a 40-21 victory against the Longhorns on Saturday night.
