Rodney Terry hired as new UTEP head coach

Fresno State‘s Rodney Terry has been tapped as the new head coach at UTEP, as first reported by FanRag’s Jon Rothstein and formally announced by the school on Monday afternoon.

Terry spent seven seasons at Fresno, winning the Mountain West Tournament in 2016 and earning the first NCAA Tournament berth for the school in 15 years. He was 126-108 during that tenure, which also included one trip each to the NIT and CBI.

A native of Angleton, TX and a graduate of St. Edward’s University in Austin, Terry previously worked as an assistant to Rick Barnes at Texas and Harry Miller at Baylor. Some of his first coaching positions were at high schools in the Austin and Houston areas in the early to mid-1990’s.

The UTEP job opened mid-season with the abrupt retirement of former head coach Tim Floyd.
