UTEP Football Assistant Coaches Mike Canales, Mike Cox Relieved of Duties

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.
