“Picks Up Podcast” with Jon Teicher features Miner Great Robert Rodriguez

In this week’s installment of the “Picks Up Podcast,” UTEP radio play-by-play man Jon Teicher visits with native El Pasoan and former Miner football standout Robert Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, who played linebacker at UTEP from 2001-04 and tallied 443 tackles in the Orange and Blue, later enjoyed stints in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans.

He returned to UTEP as an assistant coach, then joined the Minnesota Vikings staff prior to his current assignment as defensive line coach at Arizona State.

Rodriguez went to Montwood High School and lettered in both football and basketball. He was a standout running back for the Rams and was named the El Paso Times Offensive Player of the Year, as well as All City first team for the 1999 season.

The weekly “Picks Up Podcast” takes an inside look at UTEP Athletics, offering perspectives and analysis not available anywhere else, with special guests including Miner coaches, staff, student-athletes and alumni.
