Texas Tech - Staff Tracker

After a little over two seasons, Texas Tech dismissed Matt Wells back in late October. He left Lubbock with a 13-17 mark after a successful run as the head coach at Utah State prior to joining the Red Raiders.

On November 8th, we shared that Baylor outside linebackers coach Joey McGuire - a successful Texas high school coach prior to joining the FBS coaching ranks - would be the new leader of the program. Here, on the Texas Tech Staff Tracker page, we lay out the new staff and also provide some perspective by noting who coached the position on the previous staff.
