MATT WELLS HEAD COACH UTAH STATE, 1996

2013 Mountain West Coach of the Year

Sixth Season as Utah State Head Coach (34-32 Overall, 23-17 Mountain West) • Matt Wells has wasted little time putting his stamp on the Aggie football program in his five seasons as head coach, as USU is 34-32, including a 23-17 Mountain West record. • During his seven years at Utah State, Wells has been part of six bowl games, including his fourth last year as a head coach. Overall, USU played in five straight bowls from 2011-15, and won three in a row from 2012-14, both of which are school records. • In his five years as head coach, Wells has led Utah State to three wins against top 25 opponents, one more than USU had overall prior to his tenure. • During the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Wells mentored a combined 12 players who earned all-Mountain West honors. Wells also coached Jalen Davis, who was named a Walter Camp First Team All-American, while Dominik Eberle was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award. • During the 2015 season, Wells mentored 12 players who earned all-Mountain West honors, which were the third-most in the conference. Wells also coached Kyler Fackrell, who was named a fourth-team All-American by Phil Steele. • Wells coached three players who participated in the 2016 NFL Combine in Fackrell, Hunter Sharp and Nick Vigil, while 10 players from the 2015 roster were invited to NFL camps, including Vigil (Cincinnati Bengals) and Fackrell (Green Bay Packers), who were both selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. • Wells led Utah State to 10 wins in 2014 to rank as the second-most in school history behind the 2012 team that finished with an 11-2 record, including its third-straight bowl win with a 21-6 victory against UTEP in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. • During the 2014 season, Wells mentored 15 players who earned 16 all-Mountain West honors, which were the most in the league and tied for the third-most in school history. Wells also coached two All-Americans as Zach Vigil was named a second-team All-American by USA Today Sports, while Jalen Davis was named a True Freshman All-American by 247Sports. Vigil was also named the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year. • Wells was named the 2013 Mountain West Coach of the Year as he set the school record for wins by a first-year head coach as the Aggies went 9-5. • Wells led Utah State to the inaugural Mountain West Championship game after winning the Mountain Division with a 7-1 record in 2013. He also led USU to just its third-ever bowl victory as it posted a 21-14 win against No. 24 Northern Illinois in the 2013 San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. • During his first year as USU’s head coach, Wells mentored 14 Aggies who earned various all-Mountain West honors, including three All-Americans as Tyler Larsen was named a second-team All-American by USA Today Sports, Nevin Lawson was named a third-team All-American by College Sports Madness, and Kyler Fackrell was named an honorable mention Sophomore All-American by College Football News. • Wells coached a school-record four players who participated in the 2014 NFL Combine in Larsen, Lawson, Maurice Alexander and D.J. Tialavea, while 11 players from the 2013 roster were invited to NFL camps, including Alexander (Los Angeles Rams) and Lawson (Detroit Lions), who were both selected in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. • Overall, Wells is the second USU coach and fifth in school history to garner conference coach of the year honors along with Bruce Snyder (1978), Chuck Shelton (1991), John L. Smith (1997) and Gary Andersen (2012). Wells is also the fourth individual to earn MW Coach of the Year honors in his first season, along with BYU’s Gary Crowton (2001), Utah’s Urban Meyer (2003) and Air Force’s Troy Calhoun (2007). • Wells is one of just 21 FBS coaches to lead his alma mater and is just the second Utah State graduate to be appointed its head football coach, joining Chris Pella, who graduated from USU in 1965 and coached the Aggies from 1983-85. • Prior to being named the head coach at his alma mater, Wells spent the previous two seasons as an assistant at Utah State, including serving as the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2012. In 2011, Wells coached USU’s quarterbacks and was the team’s recruiting coordinator. • As offensive coordinator in 2012, Utah State concluded its most successful season in program history with a school-best 11-2 record. USU also won its first outright conference championship since 1936. WELLS’ YEAR-BY-YEAR Year Overall 2013 9-5 2014 10-4 2015 6-7 2016 3-9 2017 6-7 Totals 34-32

WHAT’S RETURNING IN 2018 • Utah State returns 18 starters (O-9, D-9) and 52 letterwinners (O-21, D-29, S-2) from last year’s team that tied for fourth place in the Mountain Division of the Mountain West with a 4-4 record and finished the season at 6-7 after playing in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

NOTABLES ON UTAH STATE HEAD COACH MATT WELLS • Utah State head coach Matt Wells’ 34 wins rank as the fourth-most in school history, while his 51.5 winning percentage (34-32) ranks seventh with a minimum of 15 games coached.

BOWL GAMES Saturday, Dec. 16 Las Vegas Bowl (Las Vegas, Nev.) • Boise State 38, Oregon State 28 (ABC) Gildan New Mexico Bowl (Albuquerque, N.M.) • Marshall 31, Colorado State 28 (ESPN) Friday, Dec. 22 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Boise, Idaho) • Wyoming 37, Central Michigan 14 (ESPN) Saturday, Dec. 23 Armed Forces Bowl (Fort Worth, Texas) • Army 42, San Diego State 35 (ESPN)

• Wells, who is entering his sixth season in charge of the Aggie football program, is the longest tenured head coach since Chuck Shelton (1986-91) also spent six years at USU. In fact, Wells is tied with Shelton and Chuck Mills (1967-72) as the fourth-longest tenured head coaches in 120 seasons of Utah State football. • Wells, the 2013 Mountain West Coach of the Year, coached his fourth bowl game in 2017 to extend the school record for most bowl games by a head coach. E. Lowell ‘Dick’ Romney (1946, 1947), John Ralston (1960, 1961) and Gary Andersen (2011, 2012) all coached the Aggies in two bowl games, while Charlie Weatherbie (1993) and John L. Smith (1997) each coached one bowl game at USU. • Wells is the second Utah State graduate to be appointed its head football coach, joining Chris Pella, who graduated from USU in 1965 and coached the Aggies from 1983-85. • Wells has been a player (1993) or coach (2012, 2013, 2014) in all four of Utah State’s bowl wins. The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl in 2017 was his seventh bowl game as an Aggie. • In his five years as head coach, Wells has led Utah State to three wins against top 25 opponents, one more than USU had in its previous 115 years. • Utah State is 14-5 with a freshman at quarterback over the last five seasons under Wells, including a 6-1 record in 2013, a 5-1 record in 2014 and a 3-3 record in 2017. • With its 40-24 win against BYU this season, Wells is the first Aggie coach to win multiple games against BYU since Bruce Snyder (1976-82) posted wins against the Cougars in 1978 and 1982, which is a span of 10 head coaches.

EBERLE NAMED ALL-AMERICAN • Utah State sophomore Dominik Eberle was named a third-team All-American by Phil Steele’s Magazine and an honorable mention All-American by SB Nation in 2017. Eberle is the first-ever USU placekicker named an All-American and just the second-ever specialist, joining Steve Mullins, who was named an honorable mention All-American punter by Football News in 2001. EBERLE NAMED FINALIST FOR LOU GROZA AWARD • Utah State sophomore Dominik Eberle was named a finalist for the 2017 Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, presented by the Orange Bowl. Eberle was one of three finalists to land on the list, joining Daniel Carlson of Auburn and Matt Gay of Utah, who won the award. Eberle and Gay are just the second and third players from the Beehive State (Utah’s Louie Sakoda in 2008) to be named a Lou Groza finalist, and Eberle is the fifth player from a current Mountain West institution. • Other than Merlin Olsen winning the Outland Trophy in 1961, this is the first time Utah State has ever had a player named a finalist for a national award. EBERLE FOURTH ALL-TIME IN FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGE • Sophomore PK Dominik Eberle is 21-of-29 on field goal attempts in his career, and his 72.4 conversion percentage ranks fourth all-time in school history. Russ Moody (1988-89) holds the school record for field goal percentage at 84.6, as he was 22-of-26 all-time on field goal attempts. • Eberle is a perfect 47-of-47 on extra points in his career and is one of just three kickers in school history with a minimum of 30 PAT’s made to have never missed an extra point, joining Willie Beecher (1981-84), who was 64-of-64 all-time on extra points, and Russ Moody (1988-89), who was 44-of-44 all-time on extra points. Those 47 extra points made in 2017 rank third all-time at USU for a singleseason, while his 47 extra point attempts rank fourth. • Eberle is one of just seven kickers in school history to not miss an extra point for an entire season, joining Nick Diaz (2012), Peter Caldwell (2010, 2007), Doug Beach (1990), Willie Beecher (1982), Tom Mayes (1975) and Steve Steinke (1978). EBERLE SECOND IN SINGLE-SEASON POINTS BY A KICKER • Sophomore PK Dominik Eberle scored 101 points in 2017 with 47 extra points and 18 field goals, to rank as the second-most points scored by a kicker in a single season in school history. Nick Diaz set the school record for points scored by a kicker with 102 during the 2013 season with 17 field goals and 51 extra points. • Eberle was 18-of-24 on field goal attempts in 2017 and his 75.0 conversion percentage ranks tied for ninth all-time in school history for a single season. Russ Moody set the school record in 1988 as he made 86.7 percent of his field goals as he was 13-of-15. Eberle’s 18 made field goals in 2017 rank tied for the third-most in a single-season in school history, while his 24 attempts ranks tied for the fourth-most. • Eberle made eight straight field goals earlier this year, which was the longest streak for an Aggie since Nick Diaz also made eight straight in 2014. • Eberle was 5-of-9 on field goal attempts of at least 40 yards in 2017, including a career long of 52 yards, which ranks tied for the 10th-longest in school history. The last Aggie kicker to make at least five field goals of 40-plus yards in a single season was Diaz in 2012, when he was 5-of-7. And, Brad Bohn was the last USU kicker to make more than five from that distance, when he was 6-of-10 from 40-plus yards back in 2000.

/// ACADEMICALLY SPEAKING /// • Utah State earned the 2017 American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Academic Achievement Award, which is presented by the Touchdown Club of Memphis. The Aggies shared the award with six other schools, including Alabama, Cincinnati, Middle Tennessee, Northwestern, Utah and Virginia. Each institution recorded a 100 percent graduation rate for members of their freshman football student-athlete class of 2010. • Utah State’s football team has a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 89 percent to rank first in the Mountain West. The Aggies also rank first among the other football programs in the Beehive State, ahead of Utah (83), Southern Utah (67), Weber State (66) and BYU (52). • Over the past eight seasons, USU has had 166 players earn academic all-league honors and 156 players have graduated from Utah State. • Utah State had two football players earn College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSiDA) first-team Academic All-District VIII honors in 2017 in sophomore DE Jacoby Wildman and redshirt freshman S Baron Gajkowski.

Davis, who set a school record with his two pick-sixes, now has five interceptions on the season and 11 in his career, which is tied with three other players for the fourth-most in school history. Furthermore, the three picks tied a Mountain West record. Senior QB Kent Myers was 16-of-27 passing for 176 yards and two touchdowns, to go along with 33 yards rushing, including a 19-yard touchdown run that gave the Aggies (3-2, 1-0 Mountain West) a 33-21 lead with 14:52 to go in the fourth quarter.

However, the tide turned in favor of the Cougars after Micah Hannemann intercepted a pass by Myers and returned it 46 yards for a touchdown. BYU ended up reeling off 21 unanswered points to open a 21-7 lead with 13:30 left in the second quarter. But, just as soon as the Cougars grabbed the momentum, the Aggies got it back - courtesy of their own pick-six. Davis intercepted a pass by Hoge and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown, brining USU to within 21-14 with 11:02 left in the second. After Leavitt intercepted a pass by Detmer, the Aggies turned the pick into three more points.

TUCSON, Ariz. - Senior RB LaJuan Hunt capped his Utah State (6-7) career by rushing for 133 yards – the most yardage by an Aggie this season – and one touchdown on 20 carries in Utah State’s 26-20 overtime loss to New Mexico State in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, held here at Arizona Stadium on Friday, Dec. 29, 2017.
