Utah State football: Matt Wells to be introduced as new Aggies coach today (+video)
LOGAN — Former Utah State quarterback Matt Wells will be introduced as the new head coach of the Aggies at a press conference today at 4 p.m.
Wells, who has served as USU's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach the past two seasons, replaces Wisconsin-bound Gary Andersen at the helm. The WAC champion Aggies capped off the most successful season in school history (11-2) with a win over Toledo last Saturday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise.
The 38-year-old Wells played for USU from 1993-96 and earned a bachelor's degree in business marketing, graduating with honors. His coaching career includes stints at Navy, Tulsa, New Mexico and Louisville.

In related news, the Deseret News has confirmed that Utah defensive line coach Chad Kauha'aha'a is leaving his alma mater after two seasons to join Andersen's staff at Wisconsin. They worked together at USU from 2009-10.
