Big loss.  Best AD in a long time IMO.

I agree, sorry to see him go. Had a couple conversations with him, very personable and seemed to enjoy interacting with alumni; also was genuinely interested in understanding the school and its culture. Will be tough to replace

You'd have to quintuple my salary to get me to move from Charleston SC to El Paso, TX. Good luck in that shithole.

Probably won't stay @ UTEP more than 3 - 4 years & then w/ be looking to move to an even bigger school, w/ a bigger pay raise.  UTEP is just another stepping stone.

My bet is he ends up being "trapped". I hope I'm wrong, I like the guy.

UTEP is D1 FBS....in FB crazy Texas no less.  If he goes there and improves the athletic dept....next step is a "better" mid-range FBS (Rice, Houston, SMU, .....maybe even a T/Tech or TCU type of school).  He is one or two good AD tours away from a big payday at a big-name school.  He served us well and I wish him well.

Go Dogs!

This is a big loss for us, but you gotta do what's right for you and your family. I wouldn't even begrudge a grad for doing this.

Good luck to him moving forward.

Looks like he has some big challenges ahead of him there:

I vote for Rob Acuno, if not Rob someone who will give me the pic of Cam's phantom fumble on the goal line against WCU. Jim would not let me have it.
