Diaz won't be gone. Neither will Mack. No one is too excited about either one staying.
Lol, that is a good one. RB coach at Texas is a better job than OC under Saban.

I real asshole to work for.
Diaz will most likely be back which is going to pretty much piss off every Texas fan here.
The biggest problem is that he refused to go away from stacking LBs behind DTs and blitzing the same guys with the same stunts over and over. Even after just lining up and going well just by being better athletes seemed to work he would go back to multiple stunts and blitzes that didn't work, and continued to make calls that befuddled pretty much all of us.
His defenses show flashes of brilliance, but its been so inconsistent this year. We went from the top ranked defense in the conference to almost dead last only in front WVU and Baylor.
It's been really frustrating watching his defense this year to be honest. Can he turn it around and have a decent year next year? It's up in the air at this point because we're losing our two senior leaders and replacing Kenny and Oakafor isn't going to be easy.

Applebee was a terrible OC. Glad Saban told him to kick rocks.
lol @ the Texas fans who think Applewhite wasn't fired at Bama...It is completely normal for a OC of a major program to take a step down for no reason at the end of the season.
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
When they work for Saban? Sure. Especially when they are going back to their alma mater. Applewhite's aspirations are higher than OC at Alabama. Isn't Alabama where Texas schools go when they want to raid coaches?
His aspirations are higher than OC @ Alabama...so he takes a step down and goes to Texas.. Makes tons of sense.
Head coaches at Alabama end up at places like A&M. Not sure if Applewhite will ever get the head coaching job at Texas, but he has put himself in a position to have a chance. Smart move on his part.
