Friday, August 13: Robert Rodriguez is a former UTEP star linebacker who graduated from Montwood High School. Rodriguez had been a graduate assistant on the coaching staff until this season, when he was named Linebackers coach at UTEP full time. It's something he was hoping would come, a chance to work with Mike Price and UTEP Defensive Coordinator Andre Patterson. "I am excited about the group that I have, I am very lucky man, a lucky guy to work for coach Price and to be learning from coach Patterson." Head Coach Mike Price added, "Robert Rodriguez, El Paso's finest, is going to be a great coach, he's really a good coach right now. He's a natural leader, a natural coach, a natural football player and coach, so I am very impressed with Robert."
