Miner Illustrated


Sean Kugler resigned from UTEP's head coaching position Sunday.

“After meeting with coach [Bob] Stull and discussing my future and the future of this program, we mutually agreed the best thing is for me to step down as the head coach,” Kugler said. “My love for UTEP is in my heart forever, and my love for all the players that I have coached here is even stronger. We have accomplished many things together -- a bowl appearance in 2014, a perfect APR score, the highest GPA in team history and countless players getting their degrees. I am so proud of my players and their behavior off the field representing El Paso as great ambassadors in community service.

“I would like to thank coach Stull and Dr. [Diana] Natalicio for this great opportunity. I would like to thank the Miner fans who I love for all your support throughout my career as a player, assistant and head coach. I am proud to be a Miner for life.”

Kugler leaves UTEP with an 18-36 record.
