Utah State head coach Matt Wells has the chance this upcoming season to throw a bucket of cold water over the hot coals under his seat from the last few seasons. Going 3-9 in the 2016 season, those coals were blazing, and Wells faced enormous pressure going into last season with a tough schedule featuring two powerful FBS teams in non-conference play and a tougher-than-usual conference slate. Despite the struggle, Wells coached like a man desperate and did exactly what he needed to do to keep his job. Nothing more, nothing less. The Aggies finished 6-6 in regular season play last year and got back into the postseason after a year away, but lost the Arizona Bowl to New Mexico State in overtime. This coming season, Wells fields a team that has over 66 percent returning production (RP), according to SBNation’s Bill Connelly, including redshirt sophomore quarterback Jordan Love.
