In this day and age of college football, assistant coaches take almost as much heat as the head coaches. With increased salaries comes increased responsibility and scrutiny. For every Manny Diaz (who got blown out as DC at Texas earlier this year) there is a Tim DeRuyter (who went from DC at Texas A&M to head coach at Fresno State where he is undefeated in 2013).
