Friday afternoon, UTEP Football Head Coach Dana Dimel announced that offensive coordinator Mike Canales and defensive coordinator Mike Cox have been relieved of their duties.
“While this was a difficult decision to make, I feel it is in the best interest of our football program moving forward,” Dimel said. “These are good men and I would like to thank them for their service, and wish them well in the future.”
UTEP finished the 2020 campaign 3-5, going undefeated at home (2-0) and 1-5 on the road.
The final loss at North Texas capped a much-improved campaign for UTEP, which tripled its win total and was competitive in three of its four C-USA losses.
A national search will begin immediately to appoint their successors.
