SAN ANTONIO (AP) - UTSA is tapping strong Texas ties in a coach for the first time going into the program's ninth season with the hiring of Jeff Traylor. It will be the former Arkansas assistant's first chance to run a college program. Traylor was an associate head coach at Texas and SMU before taking the same title at Arkansas. The Razorbacks fired coach Chad Morris last month during his second season. Traylor won three state championships coaching his high school alma mater in Gilmer in East Texas. He spent 25 years in the Texas high school coaching ranks.
