Byrne: Akina leaving Arizona

Duane Akina is reversing course.

A month after leaving Texas for Arizona, which was widely viewed as a homecoming to a program he'd coached for 14 seasons, he's returning to the Longhorns, citing "family considerations," according to a tweet from Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne.

Byrne tweeted: "Although disappointed because of the commitment we had made we respect Coach Akina’s decision based on family."

Texas lost secondary coach Jerry Gray this weekend when he was named the Tennessee Titans' defensive coordinator, so that's likely the void Akina falls into.
