December 10 in San Antonio history…

1949
The Jefferson Mustangs defeat the Dallas Sunset Bison, 31-13, to win the state championship.

1974
On the 25th anniversary of the station, WOAI-TV changes their call letters to KMOL.

1996
In a move widely criticized by Spurs fans, head coach Bob Hill is fired by general manager Gregg Popovich.   David Robinson, who played for the first time since Oct. 11, said he didn’t agree with Hill’s ouster.“But it’s not my decision to make,” said Robinson, now is playing for his seventh coach since 1989-90. “Bob and I never had any problems. I liked his love of winning. He was meticulous. He did a great job.” Popovich takes over as head coach and loses his first game, 93-76, to the Phoenix Suns.  The loss dropped the Spurs to 3-16 for the season.
