As most already know, various outlets around the internet are reporting that former Miner, and current Pittsburgh Steeler offensive line coach Sean Kugler will be the new head coach of the UTEP football team. While there has been no official confirmation from university officials, it does seem like that could be the case.
Footballscoop.com is reporting that Kugler will be the next head coach, while Pete Rousel's coachingsearch.com is merely reporting that he has interviewed, and is the frontrunner for the job.
Rumor has it that Sean Kugler has been offered that job, but there has been no official acceptance. Apparently, the job is Kugler's to turn down. It is unclear when any official announcement will come, but with word spreading like wildfire, one would think it would come sooner rather than later.
Regardless of when it is announced, expect the coach to be officially introduced at the December 17th men's basketball game against #21 UNLV. Stay tuned to MinerRush for more on this story and more, as new details become available.
