Sources: Bob Stitt will not return at Texas State

Bob Stitt will not return as the offensive coordinator at Texas State, sources told FootballScoop on Sunday. Additionally, sources said wide receivers coach Ron Antoine and tight ends coach Morris Berger will not return to the staff.

Stitt on Saturday completed his first season on staff under head coach Jake Spavital, where the Bobcats went 3-9 and finished 121st nationally in scoring.

The 55-year-old spent 15 seasons as the head coach at the Colorado School of Mines and three at Montana, going 129-76 with four playoff appearances. He instantly became the most famous Division II coach in America when Dana Holgorsen credited him during an in-game interview with a fly sweep play Holgorsen's West Virginia team used to eviscerate Clemson in the 2011 Orange Bowl.

Stitt and Spavital had never worked together prior to this season.

In addition to their No. 121 ranking in scoring, the Bobcats ranked in the triple digits nationally in total offense, yards per play and rushing, and 99th in passing efficiency.

While Spavital will search for a new offensive coordinator, the thinking here is he could end up calling his own plays in 2020.
