The Shootout Podcast:1 on 1 conversation welcomes UTEP Football’s new OC, Mike Canales! National Signing day has come and gone and the UTEP Miners have a new class that is promising for the future. With 14 offensive, 10 defensive and 3 specialists, the 24 new look Miners are making strides to completely changing the expectations of the offense, and defense.

“Defense wins championships, but offense puts butts in the seats”

Coach explains the goal for the Miners offense, explains what new players he thinks can help the team, and gives his opinion on the future of the UTEP Miners Football program under new head coach Dana Dimel, and explains how #EPMAD is sweeping the fan base!

With all the issues surrounding border security, and some of the new UTEP players living far away from the city, was there a challenge in recruiting? Did he have to make sure to emphasize El Paso as the Nations Safest City? What issues did UTEP’s 0-12 season cause in the recruiting of new players?

Thanks to UTEP Football, Coach Canales and AD, Jim Senter!
