UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter announced on Friday that softball head coach Tobin Echo-Hawk will not return for the 2020 season.

UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter announced Friday that softball head coach Tobin Echo-Hawk will not return for the 2020 season.  

Echo-Hawk coached the Miners for six seasons from 2014-2019 compiling a record of 104-207 and a 57-87 mark in Conference-USA play. Last season the Miners had an overall record of 17-33 with a 10-14 record in conference play. UTEP fell to Middle Tennessee 4-3 in the first round of the Conference-USA tournament 

“We thank Tobin for her service to UTEP and the Miner softball program,” Senter said.  “Due to this being a personnel matter, there will be no further comment.” 

Echo-Hawk is now the third head coach in the UTEP Athletics program to be fired since Senter has taken over as the Athletic Director in 2017 following the volleyball and soccer team.  

Plans for future leadership of the UTEP softball program are to be announced.
