    Lubbock news reporting that Matt Wells is terminated at Texas Tech. Since Tech keeps hiring ex WT coaches in multiple sports and SFA almost beat then earlier this season?

      I think I would pass on Tech, unless the money is sky high and guaranteed. I always thought Kliff Kingsbury was a marginal college coach, but look what he's done in the NFL. So like with the Houston Texans, it doesn't really matter who the coach is, they aren't going to be great.

      However, I would be THRILLED if Hughes took his entire staff to Tech. ;)

        Noooooooo!!!!!!! I cannot express that enough. His Dad was pathetic it was just tolerated bc Tech fans at the time accepted second class. Leach changed that and there is no going back. Tech has been in the toilet bowl since he left. Sonny was not good at Cal and we don’t need a rendition at Tech.

            Cartel has proven he can coach. He should toss his name in the hat.

              Yeah, he and his dad are great coaches. It's Tech that is the problem.

                Just seeing what Dykes is doing at Smu is pretty good but true could be another Matt Wells at Utah State fluke.Jeff Traylor from Utsa has been mention but not sure I would put all my money on him.Carthel would be a great hire but Hocutt isn’t going put his job on the line to hire a fcs coach…

                  I think this is the winning line regarding Carthel. Not as much about him (Carthel), but the downside risk is too big for Horcut.

                    1. Tech isn’t hiring a FCS coach, nor is any other P5 program.

                    2. Matt Wells is a career .500-ish coach. I don’t know why Tech would have expected something different.

                    3. The job will be offered to either Sonny Dykes or the UTSA coach, or both.

                      The state champion Gilmer, Texas HS coach has done well at the FBS level. He knows how to recruit Texas. He would be my pick.

                        Yeah I think Todd Dodge left Southlake Carroll in the mid 2000's to coach North Texas. Not a power 5 school obviously but those rare jumps have been made.

                            Hmmm, a Tech guy that coaches football… I hear Art Briles isn’t too busy at the moment.

                              Actually Jake he is busy coaching Mt Vernon HS. He is in your neck of the woods. You should go to one of his Friday Night games. My Vernon has been a lot better since he took over. My granddads home town.
