UTSA fires football coach Wilson after 1 bowl in 4 seasons
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — UTSA has fired football coach Frank Wilson after four seasons that produced a bowl appearance in year one and diminishing results afterward.
Wilson went 19-29 at Texas-San Antonio, including 13-19 in Conference USA play. The Roadrunners completed a 4-8 season on Saturday with a loss to Louisiana Tech.
Wilson was longtime assistant in the Southeastern Conference, having spent time with Ed Orgeron at both Mississippi and LSU, when he was hired by UTSA in 2016.
The 9-year-old Division I program went 6-7 in 2016, reaching the postseason for the first time and losing the New Mexico Bowl to the University of New Mexico. The Roadrunners went 6-5 the next season, getting left out of the postseason with a 3-5 conference record, and then 7-17 the last two years.
