The Kansas State Wildcats are targeting a former two-time head coach for their vacant offensive coordinator position, according to FootballScoop. The man they are focusing on is Matt Wells.

Wells has spent the past two seasons on the Oklahoma Sooners coaching staff. He has served as an offensive analyst on Brent Venables’ staff.

If Wells is hired by the school in the coming days, he would fill the role that former Wildcats great Collin Klein previously held. Klein left to join Mike Elko’s coaching staff at Texas A&M.

Klein is the Aggies’ offensive coordinator. Klein previously played college football at Kansas State and was a previous Heisman Trophy finalist.

Wells has not served as an offensive coordinator since the 2012 season with the Utah State Aggies. If he is hired in Manhattan, Kansas, he will serve as co-offensive coordinator with Conor Riley.

Riley served as interim offensive coordinator during the Wildcats bowl game.

Wells has nearly a decades long experience as a head coach. He was first a head coach with the Aggies and the Texas Tech Red Raiders from 2013 through 2021.
