2000 GT dies when moving with clutch disengaged

Hey everyone,
I've got a 2000 GT with 210k miles and a manual transmission. Just last night my Stang died 6 times on my way home from work. Specifically, it would die when I push in on the clutch as I'm slowing down or coming to a stop. It happens at any speed, even up to 60 mph.
I would assume this has to do with a sensor because it's just when the car is dropping RPMs while moving. My first though was the IAC. Any other ideas?

Will it idle or are the symptoms limited to how you described it? I would think IAC as well, but if you can start it and it idles fine then I dunno.

No codes as of now. Just replaced the IAC, I'll see how it goes.

Yeah it only dies when the car is moving. Starts up and idles no problem. I replaced the IAC and it drove fine tonight. I'm keeping a close eye on the RPM's for a few days.
