A two-time conference coach of the year, Traylor has led the Roadrunners to a 39-14 record in his first four seasons at the helm, the most wins and best winning percentage (.736) by a coach in program history. UTSA has captured a pair of conference championships, earned four straight bowl berths and made a combined 23 appearances in the three major national polls under his leadership.

This past season, Traylor guided UTSA to a 9-4 record, including a 7-1 league mark in its debut campaign in The American. The season was capped with a 35-17 victory over Marshall in the 2023 Frisco Bowl for the school’s first bowl victory.

Under Traylor’s guidance, UTSA student-athletes have collected awards and honors at a record-breaking pace. During his time in San Antonio, he has coached seven All-Americans, three national award finalists, 83 all-conference selections and a pair of NFL Draft picks.

That success is not limited to just the gridiron. The Roadrunners also have received numerous honors for their work in the classroom during the Traylor tenure, including three College Sports Communicators (CSC) Academic All-Americans, 12 CSC Academic All-District Selections and four conference all-academic team selections. Additionally, UTSA was one only 13 FBS programs to receive the 2023 AFCA Academic Achievement Award for graduation success.

Traylor and the Roadrunners will kick off the 2024 season on Saturday, Aug. 31, when they host Kennesaw State at 2:30 p.m. at the Alamodome.
