QB Drills & Training - Matt Wells & Sonny Cumbie, Texas Tech Univ.
Matt Wells, a two-time conference Coach of the Year recipient, enters his third season at Texas Tech as he was named the 16th head football coach in school history on Nov. 29, 2018.
The 2021 season will be Wells’ ninth season as a collegiate head coach as he has compiled a 52-48 overall record following six seasons at his alma mater, Utah State, and two years leading the Red Raiders. He led the Aggies to five bowl appearances during his tenure, a feat he will look to accomplish frequently as he continues to build the Texas Tech program.
Wells, a quarterback for the Aggies from 1994-96, was a member of two conference championship teams as a student-athlete, which came as a redshirt freshman in 1993 and as a senior in 1996 when Utah State was a member of the Big West Conference.
The Aggies earned a share of the Big West title each of those two seasons, the first of which garnered Utah State an invite to the 1993 Las Vegas Bowl II. Utah State topped Ball State, 42-33, in that game for its first bowl victory in school history.
A native of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, Wells earned his bachelor's degree in business marketing from Utah State in 1996, graduating cum laude. He and his wife, Jen, have two daughters, Jadyn and Ella, and one son, Wyatt. In only their short time at Texas Tech, the Wells family has contributed significantly to the Lubbock community through local non-profit organizations such as Voice for Hope and Women’s Protective Services through his Women’s Football Clinic as well as the South Plains COVID-19 Relief Fund.
