Alex Delton announced after the season he would be transferring from Kansas State. And Delton announced on Twitter he’s heading to UTEP, where he will join his former offensive coordinator, Dana Dimel, who is now the head coach of the Miners.
Excited to announce I’ll be joining @CoachDimelUTEP and the UTEP Miners for my Senior year!

Delton will join as a graduate transfer, so he can play in 2019. In Dimel’s firs year in 2018, UTEP went 1-11 and had to split time between three quarterbacks who each threw more interceptions than touchdowns.
For his career in Manhattan, Delton racked up 868 yards on the ground and 1,202 yards through the air, with the highlight coming as the MVP of the 2017 Cactus Bowl.
Delton’s best season came with Dimel as his offensive coordinator. In 2017, he rushed for 500 yards and eight touchdowns in seven games, while throwing for 637 and three touchdowns.
Kansas State is going through an overhaul this offseason with Bill Snyder retiring and Chris Klieman being hired as the new head coach, along with offensive coordinator Andre Coleman not being retained.
Skylar Thompson is expected to remain the starting quarterback for the Wildcats next season.
