Logan • Utah State football coach Matt Wells continued to restructure his staff on Tuesday.
Jovon Bouknight was named co-offensive coordinator with Luke Wells. He enters his eighth season at Utah State and will continue to coach the wide receivers.
Luke Wells begins his fourth season with the Aggies. He previously coached tight ends but will now work with the quarterbacks, in addition to continuing as co-offensive coordinator.
"Jovon and Luke … both have extensive experience in our offense and have been successful position coaches during their time at Utah State," said Matt Wells, who also announced he will call plays during games next season.
"… We have time during spring ball to work through this," he said. "I'm excited to work with Jovon and Luke in making our offense better."
In another staff move, former Louisiana-Monroe assistant Steve Farmer was officially named the Aggies' new offensive line coach. His hiring was first reported last week by the News-Star newspaper in Monroe, La.
Utah State lost six assistant coaches in the weeks after its 23-21 loss to Akron in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Dec. 22. Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel went to Missouri. Defensive coordinator Kevin Clune took a job at Oregon State.
Matt Wells started filling the vacancies on his staff by previously hiring Vanderbilt assistant Frank Maileas co-defensive coordinator with holdover Kendrick Shaver. Also, David Kotulski was named linebacker coach. Like Maile, he came from Vanderbilt.
