Manny Diaz (born March 13, 1974) is the former
defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for the
University of Texas Longhorns. Manny Diaz was fired
early into the 2013 football season with Texas after
imploding against BYU in a game that would later be
known as "The Mormon Soak" to Longhorn fans. He has
never coached football since. He currently resides in
Miami with his mother and works at the local junior high
as a part time janitor and assistant coach for the lady's
soccer team.
Manny Diaz is also very well known outside the sports
world for his repeated sexual relations with actor Michael
Fassbender. When Diaz was asked about his involvement
with Fassbender he said "I've sucked dick before. How
do you think I was able to keep that job in Austin for as
long as I did?"

Diaz began his coaching career at Florida State in 1998,
working alongside defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews
for two seasons. During his stint, the Seminoles won a
National Championship in 1999 and were runners-up in 1998.
After Florida State, Diaz played a major role for one of the country's top-ranked defenses by
coaching safeties in 2004 and 2005 and handling the linebackers in 2002 and 2003 for North Carolina State.
In 2005, the Wolfpack finished eighth nationally in total defense, sixth in third-down percentage, and 12th in scoring
defense en route to a 7-5 record and a shutout win over South Florida in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. He also
served as special teams coordinator and his kickoff return unit finished fifth nationally, while his punt return team
blocked four kicks.
In his first year as safeties coach and special teams coordinator in 2004, N.C. State's defense finished the year as
the top-ranked unit in the country in total defense by allowing just over 220 yards per game. The Wolfpack defense
also held national powers Ohio State and Florida State to under 130 yards of total offense during the season. Diaz,
who coached All-ACC performer and former New York Jet Andre Maddox, also had his punt return team block
three kicks and take two returns for touchdowns.
Diaz handled the linebackers for N.C. State in 2002 and 2003. In 2003, the Wolfpack won the Tangerine Bowl
and finished 7-5 with Diaz sharing play-calling duties for all 11 games. He also made all the defensive calls during
the bowl win over Kansas.
In his first year as a full-time coach, Diaz helped the Wolfpack to one of their best seasons ever, finishing 11-3 and
defeating Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl. He shared in the play-calling duties, and N.C. State ended the year
ranked 14th nationally in total defense and 10th in scoring defense. In back-to-back games against Florida State
and Notre Dame, N.C. State did not allow an offensive touchdown.
Diaz spent four seasons as defensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee State University. Diaz also coached
linebackers for two years after mentoring the safeties during his first two seasons in Murfreesboro.
In four years under Diaz, the Middle Tennessee defense led its conference in sacks and tackles for loss twice, and
finished no lower than third in the league in either category during his tenure. In 2009, the Blue Raiders finished
second nationally in tackles for loss, stopping more than eight and a half plays per game behind the line of
scrimmage. Diaz's defense also ranked sixth nationally in sacks that season, posting nearly three per game.
Also in 2009, Diaz tutored defensive end Chris McCoy who was tabbed the Sun Belt Conference co-Defensive
Player of the Year. McCoy led the league and ranked sixth nationally in tackles for loss. Safety Jeremy Kellum and
cornerbacks Alex Suber and Marcus Udell were also named first team all-SBC. Defensive end Jamari Lattimore
along with linebackers Cam Robinson and Danny Carmichael earned second-team honors. Overall, Diaz' unit
produced 17 all-conference players during his time there and put up three of the top four fewest yards allowed
averages at Middle Tennessee in its FBS era.
In 2010 with the Mississippi State Bulldogs, Diaz guided a defense that ranked 22nd in the nation in scoring
defense (19.9 ppg), 17th in rushing defense (214.9 ypg) and 17th in tackles for loss (7.0 pg). That was a dramatic
turnaround for MSU from the season prior to his arrival. In 2009, the defense finished 71st in scoring defense,
62nd in rushing defense and 89th in TFL. Mississippi State also finished ranked 13th in red zone defense (.73) and
22nd in turnovers forced (28) nationally this season.

In 2012 with the Texas Longhorns, Diaz guided the Longhorns' defense to their worst season in program history.
In 2013, the Longhorns' defense under Diaz gave up the most rushing yards in program history to BYU on
September 7, 2013.
