The search begins -- yet again. UTEP athletic director Bob Stull said Thursday afternoon he hopes to have a new basketball coach at UTEP "within the next couple of weeks." Some sources close to the Miner program already are saying former Miner assistant Tim Floyd is that man and that it is "a done deal." Sources spoke on condition of anonymity ...

Tim Floyd will destroy UTEP, before everyone rushes
onto the "Welcome Home Prodigal Son" bandwagon, you
better take a long hard look at the man's career and
character (that is if character is factor in hiring
UTEP coaches, what with Mike Price,Billy Gillespie &
Rabs as examples, maybe character isn't an issue)
Tim Floyd's record at USC wasn't even that good, they
lost 10 or more games every season he coached, sure
they made the NCAA, sure OJ Mayo put them in the
national spotlight (mostly for the wrong reasons)
but at what cost? Tim Floyd does not run clean
programs, this has been an issues at every school
he's coached at. His stint with the Chicago Bulls
showed that the man has his issues and isn't as good
a coach as he was made out to be, in short hiring
Tim Floyd may get UTEP some national pub and maybe
1 or 2 decent season, maybe another NCAA bid, the
price that'll be paid will be high, just ask USC.
I thought in the good old USA you were innocent until proven guilty.
why do people act as if they are perfect and pass judgement on everyone
and they fail to see their baggage? Give the man a chance. Be positive.
everyone has baggage, Barbie was a gerk. Calapari got a whole season
erased of their winnings, etc. etc. etc. no one is perfect.
Give people a chance.

I sure would like to see either Billy Gillispie or Tim Floyd coaching UTEP basketball next year. I hope this gets done quickly so we can keep recruits and current players.

Tim Floyd, hands-down he's the best choice. But,as usual Stull will screw it up like he always does and pick another random who will leave in the middle of a contract.

Gillispie is a turncoat and that traitor should not even be allowed in our airport. Houston can have him. Besides, we don't have enough beer in this town for that nutjob.

Tim Floyd! Yes!

After seeing this video, you will also conclude that Tim Floyd is the man who is a perfect fit for El Paso. Once the Miners hire Floyd, Chico's can send its security guards home, as Floyd is capable of breaking up virtually any fight between cholos and, yes, even cholas.

As a Miner Alumni who was a friend of Tim's while he was at UTEP, I would be very happy to see him back where he UTEP. Tim is a great guy, and I have fond memories of sitting in Finance Class, and talking basketball with him before class. Tim recruited a lot of really great basketball players to UTEP and I have no doubt he would be able to help keep the program back where it the Top 25.
