Coach, we hardly knew you.
UTEP's Defensive Coordinator, Jeff Choate, has resigned to become an assistant coach at the University of Florida.
Choate came to UTEP after one season at Washington State and was one of Sean Kugler's first hires after becoming the Miners Head Coach in December.
UTEP officials had no immediate comment but a press release is expected in the next 24 hours.
The timing would seem to be uncomfortable as Choate guided UTEP through spring drills, installing a new defense. His resignation comes less than a week following the Miners' Spring Game.
