Brent Pease is out as UTEP’s offensive coordinator, a source told SI on Sunday morning.

The Miners, 0-3, are second to last in all of FBS in total offense at 205 yards per game.

They were blown out 63-16 Friday night at home by Arizona. The 16 points were the most UTEP has scored all season.

The Miners rank in the bottom third of the nation in total offense, rushing offense, passing offense and team passing efficiency.

Pease was the starting quarterback as a senior at the University of Montana in 1986, getting drafted by the Minnesota Vikings the following year.

He spent his NFL years with the Vikings, Houston Oilers, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears before heading to the World League of America Football.

His coaching career began at Montana in 1991 and lasted until 1998. He’s also had stints at Northern Arizona, Kentucky, Baylor, Boise State, Florida and Washington prior to joining the UTEP staff in 2016.

The El Paso Times was first to report the move.
