Dana Dimel: Canales ‘definitely had great insight all week in preparing us’

KNOXVILLE – Mike Canales returned to Neyland Stadium as offensive coordinator for UTEP.

Canales served as Tennessee’s quarterbacks coach last season and following the game, UTEP head coach Dana Dimel discussed his assistant helping game plan against the Vols.

“He’s very close with his players,”Dimel said following the 24-0 Tennessee win. “That’s a guy I would label as a player’s coach, so he definitely knew the ins and outs of pretty much 80 to 90 percent of their personnel.

“He knew which routes guys were susceptible on their defense. He knew the tendencies of the ends and some of the linebackers. He definitely had great insight all week in preparing us. We’ve just got to go out and execute. He can’t play for us.”
