campus life grows and thrives with UTSA Football
Larry Coker’s arrival on campus in March 2009 as the first Roadrunners football coach was a fantastic moment for UTSA. With a national championship at Miami and two National Coach of the Year honors under his belt, Coker brings the skills and experience to forge a winning football program.
Football means new traditions on campus, an energized alumni and a welcome national spotlight on all of UTSA.
Cathy ’11 and Jim Bodenstedt ’96 were among the first to recognize the doors football will open, and their $1 million investment funds scholarships for football student-athletes. As Jim has said, football “is an important milestone in UTSA’s journey to being a Tier One university.”
But the benefit is not limited to UTSA. The entire San Antonio community enjoys increased tourism, pride in our city and the excitement of big-time college sports. Football has ushered in an exhilarating era for UTSA, San Antonio and Texas, and it is private support, like the gifts provided by donors like the Bodenstedts, that makes such enriching experiences available here.
