UTSA Special Teams Coordinator/Safeties Coach Perry Eliano has been hired as the Defensive Coordinator at Bowling Green.
On Tuesday evening, Bowling Green announced the hiring of Mike Jinks as their new Head Coach. Jinks, who is a San Antonio-native, formed a relationship with Eliano while the UTSA assistant was recruiting his players at Steele High School several years ago. Jinks and Eliano were also together at Ellison High School in Killeen when Eliano was a player and Jinks was an assistant coach.
Eliano came to UTSA from Central Arkansas prior to the inaugural 2011 season.
UTSA has confirmed Coach Eliano’s departure.
