Tyrone Nix has agreed in principle to be the defensive coordinator on Jeff Traylor’s first UTSA staff, sources told FootballScoop on Tuesday.

The contract has not been signed as of this writing, sources said, but Nix will be the Roadrunners’ defensive coordinator barring an unexpected late-stage breakdown in talks.

Nix spent the 2019 campaign as the outside linebackers coach at Ole Miss, but was not retained by new Rebels head coach Lane Kiffin.
