Frank Wilson is adding a very experienced voice to his offensive staff at UT-San Antonio.
UT confirmed in a press release Friday morning that Al Borges has been hired as the Roadrunners’ new offensive coordinator. The 36-year coaching veteran will also serve as the team’s quarterback coach.
Borges had spent the 2017 season as an offensive analyst at Auburn.
“I am thrilled to be able to announce the hiring of Al Borges as our new offensive coordinator,” Wilson said in a statement. “Al Borges has a masterful offensive mind and a coaching style that takes advantage of the talent and skillset of the players on the roster. His unique ability to develop quarterbacks is second to none. Our coaching staff got better today.”
Prior to the one-year stint at Auburn, Borges had been an offensive coordinator at the FBS level for most of the previous 24 years. Those stints included time at San Jose State (2015-16), Michigan (2011-13), San Diego State (2009-10), Auburn (2004-07), Indiana (2002-03), Cal (2001), UCLA (1996-2000), Oregon (1995) and Boise State (1993-94).
Twice, Borges has been named as a finalist for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation’s top assistant coach.
