Today El Paso lost its biggest hero. Don Haskins, famed coach of the Texas Western Miners(UTEP) passed away today at the age of 78.
Neil and I spent some of our first days together watching Coach Haskins lead the Miners to their 1966 National Championship. Those were truly glory days in El Paso basketball. Thanks Coach for the fun, it made for a heck of a movie.
You will be missed Coach!!
