CBSSports.com reports that Diaco has agreed to deal starting at $1.5 million per year. ESPN says it is a five-year deal.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly now must replace both coordinators. On Dec. 3, Irish offensive coordinator Chuck Martin became the head coach at Miami (Ohio).

Earlier Wednesday, Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi said he had withdrawn from consideration for the Huskies job.

UConn fired Paul Pasqualoni in September after he went 10-18 in two-plus seasons at the school.
