Larry Coker was hired to build the UTSA football program from scratch, and now the school is working to lock him up for the long term.
Picked to finish last in Conference USA West this season, the Roadrunners are currently tied for second. UTSA is 5-5 overall and 4-2 in the West.
UTSA athletic director Lynn Hickey would not discuss specifics before a proposal was sent to the UT Board of Regents, but a deal is definitely in the works.
“You can definitely say that we’re working on a long-term arrangement to keep Coach Coker at UTSA for many years to come,” Hickey told the San Antonio Express-News.
Coker wasn’t available for comment, and Hickey stopped short of saying that the former Miami (Fla.) coach had agreed to terms.
