Texas A&M-Kingville’s Wilkinson will not return in 2020

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Texas A&M-Kingsville Javelina has announced that Daren Wilkinson will not return to the program for the 2020 season. He was the school’s head coach for five seasons before the school let him go.

During his tenure, the school went 21-35, including 11-28 in Lone Star Conference games. However, during the 2019 season, the team went just 2-9.

“We appreciate Coach Wilkinson’s commitment and dedication to the Javelina football program and the positive impact he made on this community,” Executive Director of Athletics and Campus Recreation Steve Roach said. “However, at this time, we felt it was best to make a change in the leadership of the football program. Javelina football has a proud tradition and rich history, and I am confident we will find the next head coach to lead us back to that prominence.”

A national search has begun for Wilkinson’s replacement. The search will be conducted by the Parker Executive Search group.

The 2-9 record was the worst record that Wilkinson had at the school, which he had during his first-year and his last year at the school. His best season came in 2016 when he guided the team to a 9-3 record.

That season, the team also won the Live United Bowl. However, following that Bowl game win, the team went just 10-23.
