Texas defensive backs coach Duane Akina mic'd up

Duane Akina has enough skins for four walls through a dozen years as Texas' defensive backs coach. He's produced Thorpe Award winners in Michael Huff and Aaron Ross. That pair, plus Quentin Jammer, Michael Griffin, Earl Thomas and Kenny Vaccaro have been first-round picks under Akina's tuteleage. Nathan Vasher, Cedric Griffin, Tarell Brown, Aaron Williams, Curtis Brown and Chykie Brown have also carved out NFL careers after playing for Akina. In fact, 11 of Akina's 12 starting cornerbacks at Texas have spent time on NFL rosters.

You get the point.

The Hawaii native never fails to be the loudest, most energetic coach on the field and never fails to get the absolute most out of his players.
