The Texas State Bobcats has hired Jake Spavital as the team’s new head football coach. He replaces Everett Withers, who was fired at the end of the season.

Withers was fired with one game left. As the head coach, he went 7-28.

Houston Cougars offensive coordinator Kendal Briles emerged as the front-runner for the position early on. But as the process went on, Spavital became the leading candidate for the position.

The 33-year-old Tulsa, Oklahoma native receives his first head coaching position. He had spent the past two seasons as the West Virginia Mountaineers Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach. 

This past season, the Mountaineers averaged 42.27 points per game. The offense averaged 520.4 total yards. 

He helped develop Will Grier the past two seasons. Grier has gone 266 of 397 for 3,864 yards. He also had 37 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Spavital was also the California Bears Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach in 2016. He was the Texas A&M Aggies Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach in 2014 and 2015. 

Prior to that, the former Missouri State quarterback and punter served as the Aggies Co-Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach in 2013. He was the Mountaineers Quarterbacks Coach in 2011 and 2012. 

He was a graduate assistant with the Oklahoma State Cowboys in 2010. He also was a graduate assistant with the Houston Cougars in 2009. He began his coaching career as an Offensive Quality Control Coach with the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in 2008.
