Diaz Named Defensive Coach

The staff shuffling has begun in the wake of the Buddy Green departure for the Navy Academy. Coach Amato has announced the promotion of graduate assistant Manny Diaz to full time coach.

NC State head football coach Chuck Amato has hired Manny Diaz as a full-time coach for the Wolfpack staff. Diaz, who has spent the past two years as a defensive graduate assistant, will coach a position to be determined at a later date.

"Manny is a very talented young coach with a great deal of enthusiasm," said Amato. "He has been very loyal to me for last five years, both at NC State and at Florida State, and I know that he will be a great asset to this program. He has a bright future in the coaching field."

Diaz has spent the last two seasons working with the Wolfpack linebackers, running the offensive scout team in practice, assisting coaches with special team preparation, breaking down opponent's offensive game film, preparing scouting reports and overseeing computer scouting programs. He came to NC State after a three-year stint working in various capacities with the Florida State football program. Read more...
