Texas Tech: Texas Tech introduced Matt Wells as its new head coach Saturday. Wells is familiar with the tools the explosive Tech offense has and believes the Red Raiders can make a jump quickly from this season’s 5-7 finish. Tech averaged 37.3 points per game in league play despite constant injury issues at quarterback.
Wells’ coaching career started at Navy from 1997-01. He went to Tulsa (2002-06), New Mexico (2007-08, 2010) and Louisville (2009) before joining Gary Andersen’s staff at Utah State in 2011.
Wells was elevated to head coach at his alma mater in 2013.
