Akina's Exit

Updated: Sunday, January 12 2014, 01:47 PM CST

For the first time since 2001, the University of Texas will have a new defensive backs coach next season.

Duane Akina, who served as the Longhorns DBs coach, will not be retained by new Texas head coach Charlie Strong.

"We all know when we get into this profession that it's a dangerous job," Akina told KEYE TV Sports. "Stay low; bullets are flying all over the place. I fully understand and respect the decision, and I think they will go on and play great defense back there."

In 13 seasons at Texas, Akina mentored 13 defensive backs that were drafted by the NFL. He also groomed 14 first team All-Big 12 selections.

"What's made it really special is that all of these great players were really really good guys," and emotional Akina told us. "And I think that's really the thing I'll miss the most - those relationships you build with those guys. I coach my guys hard, but I love 'em hard, too."

Akina, who has 35 years of coaching experience, says he intends to keep coaching. The University of Washington alumnus spent 14 seasons at Arizona before being hired at Texas in 2001.
