Miami Hurricanes head coach Manny Diaz will take over play-calling duties in 2021.
In finalizing the coaching staff for next season, Diaz announced Thursday that Blake Baker will remain as defensive coordinator.
"Blake will continue to run our defense and I will call the defensive plays on game days, which we feel is our best path to maximizing our strengths on that side of the ball," Diaz said in a statement.

Diaz was Miami's defensive coordinator for three seasons under former head coach Mark Richt, who retired after the 2018 season.
Baker was hired by Diaz to be his defensive coordinator in 2019.
Diaz has plenty of experience as a defensive play caller. He served as defensive coordinator at Mississippi State, Texas, Middle Tennessee and Louisiana Tech, where he worked with Baker.
