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.

Fans can watch USU's official announcement via live streaming on www.utahstateaggies.com, or on the radio on KVNU (610 AM) in the Cache Valley.
