Larry Coker Settles With UTSA

Larry Coker, who resigned after a 3-9 season in 2015, has settled on his buyout with UTSA for $650,000 according to an AP report tonight. Coker could have received as much as $1.56 million as severance for his last three seasons remaining on his deal.
Coker finished 26-32 at UTSA after starting the program from scratch, but fell from popularity with a loud but small group in the fan base during a season that many felt fell under expectations, despite a largely popular opinion before and during the season that this was largely a rebuilding year after the Roadrunners lost more than 30 seniors from the 2014 season. Coker, rather than divide the university and fan base decided to resign under pressure instead.
Coker coaching career is likely over considering his age and experience at this point.
The original report was issued by the San Antonio Express-News after having received the information under the Freedom of Information Act.
