SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Larry Coker is back in college football.
The coach who led the Miami Hurricanes to the 2001 national championship was introduced Friday as the first head coach of the Texas-San Antonio football program, which is expected to begin play in the 2011 season.
Coker was met by a raucous ballroom filled with students and supports, and promised to ``build the program the right way, as a marathon.'' Coker called San Antonio a great opportunity in the ultra-competitive Texas recruiting landscape.
It's the first coaching job for Coker since being fired by Miami in 2006.
UTSA has about 28,000 students in a city that is the nation's largest without an NFL or Division I team.
