Utah State head coach Matt Wells has agreed to become head coach at Texas Tech, sources told FootballScoop Thursday evening.

Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt made Wells a top priority early in the process, and multiple reports over the past 48 hours pointed toward Wells being the guy.

Sources said terms have been agreed to. We understand the Utah State administration is aware of Wells’ plans and sources tell FootballScoop Wells plans to inform his Utah State team this evening as well.

Earlier Thursday, FootballScoop reported what a Wells staff in Lubbock might look like.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
