SAN ANTONIO —UTSA head coach Frank Wilson announced Monday that he has promoted Jeff Kastl to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. “I’m excited to announce that Jeff Kastl will be our offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach,” Wilson said. “He’s a dedicated coach with a bright mind and he has done an outstanding job with our receivers and as our passing game coordinator during his time at UTSA. Jeff is a rising star in the coaching world and he will have a positive and immediate impact on our program in his new role.” Kastl was one of Wilson’s first hires at UTSA when he was named wide receivers coach on Jan. 20, 2016, just five days after Wilson was named the second head coach in program history, and he is the longest-tenured assistant coach on the staff. A former quarterback at Michigan from 2002-06, Kastl spent his first two seasons at UTSA as the wide receivers coach before adding the role of passing game coordinator prior to the 2018 campaign.  During his time in the Alamo City, his receivers have broken 10 school records. Kerry Thomas Jr. finished his career as UTSA’s all-time receiving yardage leader with 1,630 and receiving touchdowns with 17.
