Possible replacements for Coach Bush

With the departure of offensive coordinator Travis Bush, UTSA is left searching for his replacement with only a few weeks remaining before spring practice begins. According to Dan McCarney, head coach Larry Coker “already has multiple candidates in mind, including a favorite, but has yet to make contact with any.”

With no public information on who might be considered for the job, I put on my Larry Coker hat and began the search for my next offensive coordinator. I have identified five candidates for the job, which I think would make sense for both parties, listed in order of preference.
