SAN ANTONIO – UTSA starting quarterback Frank Harris will come back for one more season with the Roadrunners, he announced during a press conference Wednesday.
“I appreciate the support from all of the fans... I wasn’t ready to leave yet,” Harris said.
This will be his seventh year playing for UTSA. His announcement comes after he received an MVP award for his outstanding performance in securing the university’s second consecutive title at the Conference-USA Championship game.
Harris completed 32 of 37 passes for 341 yards and five total touchdowns, while leading the Roadrunners to a 48-27 victory over North Texas.
He spoke alongside other Bexar County officials at the conference, including Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff and County Judge-elect Peter Sakai. They also announced the creation of City Fans 210 -- a 510(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising the highest level of college football.
“Forget the NFL -- we don’t need them. We’ve got our team right here,” Wolff said. “We’ve got more excitement in college football than you’ll see in the NFL.”
For the season, Harris threw for 3,865 yards and 31 passing touchdowns, while also rushing for 588 yards and nine TDs. Following their 11-2 season, UTSA is set to play at the Duluth Trading Cure Bowl on Dec. 16 in Orlando, Florida.
Next year will be the university’s last season as a member of Conference-USA before they transition into the American Athletic Conference.
The Roadrunners will also go into the season with a new play-caller, as offensive coordinator Will Stein recently announced that he is leaving UTSA to become the Oregon Ducks’ new offensive coordinator.
Harris has one year of eligibility remaining.
