2x Big East Coach of the Year (2001–2002)

Head Coach: Larry Coker

  • Overall Record (Yrs): 83-39 (10)
  • Record at School (Yrs): 23-24 (4)
  • Record vs. K-State: 0-0
  • Salary: $400,000

Larry Coker is part of an elite (dubious?) club of college coaches who have won a national title and are now coaching on a much, much lower level. In his first season as head coach of Miami in 2001 he inherited a stacked team from Butch Davis and went undefeated, ending with a Rose Bowl victory over Nebraska to win the National Championship. He was the first head coach to win a national title in his first season since 1948. He continued winning seasons, but disappointing by Miami’s self-inflated standards, which culminated in a 6-6 season in 2006.

Coker hung out at ESPNU for awhile until Texas-San Antonio announced they’d be starting a football program in 2009. His first season with the Roadrunners (and their first in the program) was a 4-6 independent FCS level campaign in 2011. The next year they joined the WAC and completed an 8-4 season before moving to Conference USA beginning in 2013. In spite of two winning seasons at UTSA, Coker has yet to lead them to a bowl.

Though his first head coaching stint didn’t come until 2001, Coker has been in coaching since 1971, including Big 8 stops at Oklahoma State (1983-89) and Oklahoma (1990-92).

Roadrunners Offense

  • Passing Offense: 332.0 yds/game (23rd in FBS)
  • Rushing Offense: 193.0 yds/game (63rd in FBS)
  • Scoring Offense: 32 points/game (65th in FBS)

Baylor Lite

UTSA was the most experienced team in the country last season. This year, then, they returned only 6 starters. It’s as good of a time as any to make a major change, so enter the up tempo offense. And it’s a good one. When you watch UTSA play they remind you of a Baylor offense if they didn’t have the athletes. It’s up tempo. They’re looking for a great balanced attack full of quick passes and a varied rushing attack.  There’s no quick score threat, but the base is there.

The Air Attack

UTSA played two quarterbacks in their game at Arizona, but Russell Bellomy, the transfer from Michigan, only played a handful of snaps. Blake Bogenshutz started the season last year as a freshman before getting hurt and getting a medical redshirt. He looks like a freshman at times, but can be extremely effective. He doesn’t see the field well, but if you give him a chance to get quick strikes at his first read, he’ll take advantage of it every time. The connection with his tight end, #82 David Morgan is particularly potent.

The Ground Attack

If you want to pattern your offense after a team like Baylor you have to be able to balance the attack on the ground. The Roadrunners have a nice complimentary pair of backs in Jarveon Williams and Jalen Rhoads. Williams (#2), a junior, isn’t particularly fast, or particularly shifty, but he makes the most of what he has by being just quick enough, and just elusive enough. #28, redshirt freshman Jalen Rhodes is faster and quicker, but even more than that, he does a tremendous job of seeing the lanes and getting to them.

Roadrunners Defense

  • Passing defense: 229 yds/game (70th in FBS)
  • Rushing defense: 163 yds/game (73rd in FBS)
  • Points against: 42 points/game (106th in FBS)

Strength vs Strength

K-State has an experienced and very good defense with a young inexperienced offense. Strike that and reverse it for UTSA. That means the questionable offense will face the questionable defense and the strengths of both teams will face each other as well on Saturday.

#93 Marcus Davenport

On this young defense, Marcus Davenport is the leader. This extremely athletic defensive end is the guy you’ll see flying all over the field and getting into plays when he should have already been taken out of it. Of course, temper your expectations. Being the best player on a bad defense doesn’t always mean what you think it means.

#9 Marcos Curry – OLB

In UTSA’s 4-2-5 defense it was Marcos Curry who was the linebacker racking up tackles in week one. Count on him to be the anchor of the defense on Saturday when they face K-State.
