EL PASO - Chad Raymond, who served as a program coordinator at UTEP from 2008-2010, returns to coach the tight ends announced head coach Mike Price on Thursday.

"It's great to be back at UTEP," said Raymond. "I can't wait to get to work and make a contribution to the program."

"Chad was the obvious choice," Price said. "Having been a member of my staff, he knows the system and the players and knows how to analyze the offense having been up in the booth. It made sense to hire him and we are lucky to have him on our staff.

"He brings great knowledge to the program. Not only did he play the position in college but he has extensive experience coaching the position. He will be valuable in recruiting around the state of Texas."

His primary recruiting areas at New Mexico Highlands were Central, East and West Texas, as well as Houston and northern California junior colleges.

He spent 2012 spring ball at his alma mater, Tarleton State, where he worked with the o-line before getting the opportunity to rejoin the FBS coaching ranks.

Raymond served as an offensive GA/tight ends coach at Midwestern State University in 2007. He was involved with all facets of the football operation, including assisting with recruiting, coaches' films and camps.

Raymond played tight end at Cisco Junior College and Tarleton State University. He earned his bachelor's of Business Administration degree from Tarleton State in 2006.
