Jake Spavital fired after four seasons at Texas State

Texas State head coach Jake Spavital has been fired, the school announced on Sunday. Spavital went 13-35 (9-23) in four seasons at the helm without any bowl appearances.

“Jake has been a tremendous member of our Bobcat community for four years, engaging our fans and donors, recruiting tremendous young men to wear our uniform, and acting as a man of integrity and character. Ultimately, we simply did not win enough games and make the desired progress for us to believe that the immediate future would be different. On behalf of Texas State Athletics, I want to thank Jake for his service, and we wish him, Mehgan, and their family all the best moving forward.”

Spavital was hired in 2019 after over a decade of FBS coaching roles, including stints as the OC at West Virginia (2017-18), California (2016) and Texas A&M (2014-15).
