UTEP Defensive Coordinator Mike Cox Guests on this week’s “Picks Up Podcast”

This week, “Voice of the Miners,” Jon Teicher, sits down with UTEP Defensive Coordinator Mike Cox in this week’s episode of the “Picks Up Podcast.”

Cox gives updates on the Miner football team as it continues preparations for the 2020 season.

A 32-year coaching veteran who has been prominent in the preparation of NFL prospects, Mike Cox enters his third season as UTEP’s defensive coordinator and linebackers coach under Dana Dimel in 2020.

Cox installed an aggressive and physical defense to the program.

In 2019, the Miner stop troops featured a second team All-Conference USA defensive end (senior Denzel Chukwukelu) as well as a burgeoning prospect in defensive end Praise Amaewhule, who made the Conference USA All-Freshman Team.

Junior cornerback Josh Caldwell registered 11 pass breakups, tied for the eighth-most in a season in school history.  Meanwhile, senior safety Justin Rogers became the first UTEP player to record an interception in four separate seasons since future NFL standout Quintin Demps achieved the feat from 2004-07.

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