Wednesday, January 13: At 6:00pm Wednesday, I contacted UNLV about reports that former UNLV Defensive Line coach Andre Patterson will join UTEP as Defensive Coordinator. All UNLV could tell me was that Patterson was no longer employed at the school. UTEP is staying mum about a possible replacement. IN A STORY NEWSCHANNEL NINE BROUGHT TO YOU BACK IN DECEMBER, UTEP FOOTBALL WILL TERMINATE THE CONTRACT OF DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR OSIA LEWIS. UTEP OFFICIALS WON'T COMMENT OTHER TO SAY ANY CHANGES TO THE COACHING STAFF WILL BE ANNOUNCED NEXT WEEK. LEWIS TOLD A REPORTER IN ORLANDO, SITE OF A COLLEGE FOOTBALL COACHES CONVENTION, THAT HE WAS FIRED BY UTEP.
