“I want to thank Coach Wilson for his efforts on behalf of the football program and the university, and for his commitment to his student-athletes,” AD Lisa Campos said. “As only the second head coach in our history, Coach Wilson continued to build on the foundation of a young football program and we are grateful for his contributions to UTSA.”

A national search has begun to find a new coach. The school said that they will use a search firm to aid in their search.

He was 19-29 at the school. The Roadrunners went 4-8 during his final campaign at the school.

He had one winning season at the school. In 2017, the team went 6-5 on the season; however, despite being Bowl eligible, the team did not get picked for a Bowl game.

Wilson went 12-12 in his first two seasons, including a loss in the New Mexico Bowl. However, in the last two seasons, he guided the program to a 7-17 record.

“While decisions like this are never easy,” Campos said, “it is important that we take the steps that will help us build for the future and keep UTSA Athletics a vital part of the community. There is so much to look forward to as we continue to position our program to compete at the highest level.”
