Texas assistant coach returns

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Duane Akina, the former Texas defensive
backs coach who took a similar job at Arizona a few weeks ago, is
returning to the Longhorns.

Akina spent the past 10 seasons at Texas, but was one of several
assistants under head coach Mack Brown to leave after the Longhorns
went 5-7. He coached 14 seasons with the Wildcats earlier in his
career and returned in January.

Texas hired Jerry Gray to replace Akina, but Gray agreed
Saturday to become defensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans.
Akina said Monday he was "not happy that I had to put both of
these institutions in this situation." He said having younger
children was a "driving force" behind the decision to return to
Austin.
