SAN ANTONIO – It was an up and down season for the UTSA Roadrunners. Though they finished bowl eligible at 6-5, all of those losses came in conference play.

The Roadrunners also lost three out of their last four games and they did not score a single touchdown since its Nov. 11 game.

The poor play-making led to head coach Frank Wilson relieving offensive coordinator Frank Scelfo of his duties on Sunday.

Below is the statement from the athletic department.

UTSA head coach Frank Wilson announced Sunday that offensive coordinator Frank Scelfo has been relieved of his duties effectively immediately. “Earlier today I met with Coach Scelfo and came to a decision that has the best interests of the direction of our program in mind,” Wilson said. “I sincerely appreciate all of his hard work and dedication over the last two seasons and I wish him nothing but the very best.” Scelfo was in his second season as the Roadrunners’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Wide receivers coach Jeff Kastl will handle play-calling duties for the Roadrunners’ bowl game. Wilson will conduct a national search for a new offensive coordinator.
