Lunda Wells, 36, is taking over as tight ends coach for the Dallas Cowboys. At age 36, Wells is one of the youngest coaches in the NFL. This will be his second stint with the Cowboys. Before the 2010 season, Wells was an offensive intern during training camp.
Wells is originally from Baker, Louisiana and went to Southern college. Wells started four years at guard (2002-05) and earned a bachelors degree in criminal justice and in 2007, earned a masters degree in criminal justice.
Wells began his coaching career at LSU in 2008-09 as the Offensive Line assistant and then transitioned to being the assistant Special Teams Coach/Assistant to the Head coach.
For the past eight seasons, Wells has been on the New York Giants coaching staff in various roles from offensive assistant to most recently being the tight end coach.
People that cover the Giants characterized Wells’ departure as a big hit to the coaching staff as Wells really made an impact on Evan Engram and his blocking.
Engram couldn’t contain his excitement before the 2019 season because of his improved blocking. He gave Coach Wells a lot of credit for that improvement.
“It’s crazy how much better I have gotten at the blocking game. Credit to Coach Wells and my teammates,” Engram said before the 2019 season. Engram was only able to play 8 games in 2019 due to a foot injury.
Blake Jarwin has shown flashes for the Cowboys, especially in the passing game and his blocking should benefit from having Wells on the coaching staff.
