CORAL GABLES, Fla. – It appears that Manny Diaz has found the man to run his offense.

The Miami Herald reports that Major Applewhite is expected to be named the Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator.

According to CanesInSight, it's a done deal.

Several University of Miami players were seen tweeting Apples on Twitter, which could be an indication about Applewhite.

Applewhite played quarterback at the University of Texas from 1998-2001.

He most recently was the head coach at Houston before getting fired.

Among his previous jobs, Applewhite was an assistant for Nick Saban at Alabama in 2007. He also worked with Diaz at Texas, when Applewhite was co-offensive coordinator and Diaz was defensive coordinator for the Longhorns.
