Report: Missouri to interview one of the top young coaches in the country
Yet another name has emerged as a potential candidate to replace Gary Pinkel at Missouri.
Utah State coach Matt Wells will interview with Missouri athletic director Mack Rhoades, according to Gabe DeArmond of Mizzou Power, the Rivals site that covers the Tigers.
Wells, 42, is in his third season as coach for Utah State. He’s 25-15, including a 10-4 season in 2014 when the Aggies ended up using four quarterbacks because of injuries.
Utah State is 6-6 this season, but won games against Boise State, Colorado State and Fresno State earlier in the year before injuries became a problem again. Wells grew up in Oklahoma, and is considered one of the top young offensive minds in the country.
