Breaking News: Duane Akina to Arizona

Breaking news out of Austin this morning as the Texas Longhorns lose another coach in the wake of their worst season under Mack Brown.  Duane Akina will join the Cats as their new defensive backs coach starting immediately.  Duane Akina was the defensive backs coach at Arizona under Dick Tomey and has an incredible resume.

Texas has produced incredible talent in the secondary in the last 10 years including Michael Huff (Raiders), Quentin Jammer (Chargers), Cedric Griffin (Vikings), Michael Griffin (Titans), Earl Thomas (Seahawks) and Aaron Williams who enters this years draft as a top prospect. 

This is great news for the Cats to get such a high caliber coach and one that has proven he can recruit in the state of Texas.  Look for Akina to whip the DB's into shape.  I bet Adam Hall is pumped.  Check out burntorangenation.com for the Horns take on the situation.
