Utah State University Vice President and Director of Athletics John Hartwell announced Friday that Assistant Head Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator Frank Maile would be the interim head coach of the Aggies until a permanent head coach is named. Hartwell said Matt Wells informed his team Thursday night that he is heading to Lubbock, Texas to be the head coach of Texas Tech. Maile is in his eighth season as an assistant with USU and played for the Aggies from 2004-07 as a defensive lineman. Maile joined the Aggie coaching staff in 2009 as a graduate assistant and was elevated to the Defensive Line coach in 2011. In 2014-15 Maile went to Vanderbilt under the same capacity, but returned to USU in 2016. Maile will help the remaining coaches continue recruiting and prepare the team for a bowl game. ... As USU prepares for a bowl game, Hartwell will be busy trying to determine who the next head football coach will be. He said there has already been a lot of interest.
