Texas Tech Head Coach Matt Wells visits Abilene


New Texas Tech Head Football Coach Matt Wells was in Abilene earlier tonight to meet up with the boosters and to talk up the 2019 Red Raiders.

Wells takes over a Raider program that was just 25-35 in the last five seasons, and they haven’t won a bowl game since 2013.

There’s been a win drought in Lubbock, but Wells believes his team is ready to start turning it around.

Head Matt Wells said, “The thing that I want to do this first year is build and lay the foundation. That’s the discipline, the physical and mental toughness, and the accountability. Those are the biggest things that we’ve got to focus on, we’ve got to lay the foundation, and then we’ve got to get in the fight. I think the biggest key for us over the summer is picking up where we left off, we can’t go backwards and that’ll remain to be seen. When we start on August 2nd, report on the 1st, that practice on August the 2nd has to be practice 16. It’s the progress that we make over the summer that will set right where we’re at in training camp.”

The Red Raiders get back to work in August. The new season starts August 31st against Montana State.
