Former UTSA player J.R. Harris was announced as the program's video coordinator on June 26, 2023, returning to the Roadrunners after beginning his career in the coaching world.

"It is truly special to bring back former players into the program," head coach Steve Henson said at the time of his annoucement. "J.R. was an excellent leader for this program when he played, and he will take charge of all our video responsibilities and be a great asset for our players."
Taking over video coordinator duties for the UTSA program, Harris was among the first Roadrunners to play under Henson; his senior season coinciding with Henson's first at the helm. Harris returns to San Antonio after spending the 2022-23 school year as the head boys basketball coach at Istrouma High School in his hometown of Baton Rouge, La.
"I'm grateful and thankful of Coach Henson for the opportunity to return to my alma mater as video coordinator and skill development," Harris said. "I'm 100 percent committed to the program and to helping the Roadrunners achieve success in any way I can."
Following his playing career, Harris returned home to teach and work in athletic administration at Inspire Academy. Leaning on an extensive basketball career, Harris transitioned his gifts and experience to the coaching world, serving as the assistant coach at Hillsboro, Texas-based Hill College during the 2021-22 season. Harris helped the team achieve a 21-10 regular season record and 9-5 in conference before taking over a dream opportunity to lead the Istrouma Indians.
After starring at Baton Rouge's Southern University Lab School as a District MVP, All-Metro, All-District and All-State player, Harris played two seasons at Iowa-based Indian Hills Community College where he won back-to-back Region 11 regular season and tournament titles before coming to UTSA. Although an injury cut his senior season and career short, Harris played 31 games as a junior, recording 19 consecutive starts to close out the season and rank third on the team with 11.9 ppg – scoring in double figures 19 times. He hit at least five three-pointers in five contests and knocked down 66 from long range that season.
