Nevada Football: Matt Mumme is MWwire’s 2020 Coordinator of the Year
The Wolf Pack offensive coordinator engineered a high-flying Air Raid attack and earned our honor as Mountain West football’s best.
A big leap forward for the offense.
Mountain West Wire’s 2020 postseason honors:
All-Conference Teams | Offensive Player of the Year | Defensive Player of the Year | Special Teams Player of the Year | Freshman of the Year | Newcomer of the Year | Coach of the Year | Coordinator of the Year
Nevada Wolf Pack offensive coordinator made good on our staff’s preseason prediction that he would be the Mountain West’s best coordinator in 2020, as he was again our choice now that the season in the books.
Though he faced some competition from a handful of coordinators on the defensive side of the ball, Mumme’s Air Raid offense proved to be a difference maker in the Mountain West after averaging 6.46 yards per play, the team’s best such average since 2010, and averaging 30.8 points per game en route to a 7-2 season. The Wolf Pack were particularly noteworthy for their explosiveness with 12 plays of over 50 yards, surpassed by just two teams (North Carolina and Appalachian State) who didn’t have to do it in just nine games.
The crazy part? Mumme’s Wolf Pack may just be warming up since just about every contributor of note could be back in 2021.
