  University President Ricardo Romo posted on Facebook this morning that the legal team worked through the night to hammer out the final deal with LSU Running Back Coach Frank Wilson. He'll be the second-ever head coach of UTSA football when his appointment is made official at a press conference this afternoon. 
Romo praises Wilson as the winner of Best Recruiter in America, and says Coach Wilson and his family are headed our way. 
Wilson  will replace Larry Coker, who stepped down earlier this month after nearly seven years and five seasons.
