Texas A&M quarterbacks coach Tom Rossley is one of six candidates known to have interviewed
for the vacant head coaching job at start-up program UTSA, the San Antonio Express-News' David Flores reports. Former Baylor defensive coordinator and Texas football standout Bill Bradley also is scheduled to meet with UTSA athletic director Lynn Hickey about the job next week.
