Sean Kugler was named UTEP's coach Monday. On Tuesday, he made a call to his son's quarterback.

North Allegheny (Wexford, Pa.) quarterback Mack Leftwich plays with offensive lineman Patrick Kugler, Sean's son. When Sean Kugler called Leftwich on Tuesday to offer him a scholarship, Leftwich immediately accepted the offer from his friend's father.

"He called me earlier tonight to officially offer," Leftwich said Tuesday night.
