We have confirmed Frank Wilson is no longer the head coach of the UTSA Roadrunners.

UTSA concluded a 4-8 season with a loss at Louisiana Tech Saturday. Wilson told us he was given the news Sunday morning.

Wilson energized a fledgling UTSA program when he arrived four years ago and took the Roadrunners to a bowl game in his first season. Under Wilson's leadership, the Roadrunners got their first win over a Power 5 program when they defeated Baylor in 2017 and produced a first round draft pick in Marcus Davenport.

The Runners struggled the past two seasons as they were hampered by injuries to quarterback Frank Harris, but showed signs of a bright future. True freshman running back Sincere McCormick had a record setting season and nine of the 11 starters in the La. Tech game were either freshmen or sophomores.

Wilson also brought Division I expectations in areas of facilities, assistant coaching salaries ,and operations to a program that, before his arrival, operated at an FCS level.

UTSA Athletic Director Lisa Campos had this statement:

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,” 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.
