UTEP Football: Pair of Coaches Leave the Program
In some UTEP football offseason news, a pair of coaches have left the program and accepted similar jobs at other colleges.
Matt Rahl, who was promoted to offense quality control for the 2019 season, took a job as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Missouri Southern State (D-II), his alma mater. Rahl also served as the recruiting coordinator for UTEP in 2018. Prior to his time with the Miners, Rahl had success in the Division II ranks with McKendree, where he served as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. The move was first reported by Football Scoop on Tuesday.
Barrick Nealy, UTEP's recruiting coordinator and senior player personnel director in 2019, has taken a similar job at UTSA, Mike Orakpo reported on Wednesday. Nealy was an integral part in UTEP's recruiting during Dimel's tenure, having served as the director of player development – high school relations in 2018. He will join newly hired UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor.
Earlier this month, Old Dominion football head coach Ricky Rahne announced the hiring of Remington Rebstock, former UTEP secondaries coach.
These have been the first three shakeups to Dana Dimel's staff, as he enters his third offseason as the Miners' head coach. No coaching changes have been announced by Dimel or the university.
