Assistant Coach

Matt Mumme enters his third season with the Aggie staff working with his father as NMSU’s quarterbacks coach.

   Mumme’s golden armed quarterback Chase Holbrook passed for 3,866 yards, 26 touchdowns and averaged 322.2 yards a game through the air in 2007. He also finished the season completing 70.2 percent of his passes. Holbrook finished fifth in the nation in passing yards per game (322), seventh in total passing yards (3,866), second in pass completions per game (31.75) and fourth in pass completion percentage (70.2). During the course of the season, Holbrook broke the school record for total offense, passing yards, pass attempts, pass completions, passing touchdowns and completion percentage. Mumme also guided back-up quarterback J.J. McDermott against Louisiana Tech after Holbrook was out with injuries. McDermott threw for 319 yards on 29-of-40 passing and two touchdowns.

   In 2006 Mumme guided Chase Holbrook to national status. Holbrook finished the year with 4,619 yards passing and 4,541 yards of total offense, both NCAA records for a sophomore and school records for a single-season. He ranked second in the nation in total offense per game 378.4, while leading the Aggie offense to a number two ranking in the nation in passing offense per game with 399.3 yards, third in total offense with 475.1 yards per game, 12th in passing efficiency (155.06) and 15th in the country in scoring offense with 31.1 points per game. Holbrook broke school records for most attempts in a single-season (566), attempts a single-game (73), completions in a single-season (396), completions in a single-game (50), yardage in a singe-season (4,619), most consecutive completions (16), touchdown passes in a season (34), 300-yard passing games in a single-season (10), 200-yard passing games in a single-season (12), consecutive 300-yard passing games for a career and season (7), consecutive games with a touchdown pass (12), completion percentage in a single-season (.700), passing yards per game in a single-season (384.9), passing efficiency in a single-season (155.06) and touchdowns responsible for in a single-season (38).

   The Aggie quarterbacks broke several school records in 2005, including passing attempts for a season (547), most completions in a season (310) and most completions in game (40). The NMSU passing offense ranked second in the WAC and 24th in the nation, throwing for 266.0 yards per game, while ranking seventh in total offense with 344.4 yards per game.

   In 2004, Mumme tutored star quarterback Martin Hankins who led the nation (I-AA) in total offense, finished 11th in passing efficiency and was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award as a sophomore.  He was also responsible for the oversight of the Hal Mumme Football Camps.

   Mumme played collegiate football under his father at the University of Kentucky and at Valdosta State and currently tutors the Aggie quarterbacks in a system in which he is very familiar. Mumme is well known for his heroic effort against Indiana, in which he threw a 79-yard touchdown pass that sparked Kentucky to the comeback victory en route to the Outback Bowl.

   After a successful career as an award-winning account manager for Lexmark International, Mumme caught the coaching bug and joined his father’s staff at SLU.

   The Stephanville, Texas, native earned his bachelor’s degree from Kentucky in 1999 and completed his MBA from Southeastern Louisiana in 2004.
