This is Wylie's second year at Texas Tech, and the results of his instruction are evident. Records in the weight room have been broken, and the team's performance on the field has also improved. Wylie says that he strives to instill hard work into the players and accomplishes this task through unique methods of training. Besides the basic weight room training, Wylie has also installed a 40-yard sand pit to help the players with speed and quickness. He explains, "I try to challenge the guys by keeping them on their toes. I feel like keeping them excited about their training is important to their success."
During the football season, the team cuts back to some extent on their weight training in order to spend more time preparing their game plan for the opponent. Wylie is looking forward to the upcoming weeks when the Red Raiders will use the extra time to "get healthy, as well as spend some additional time in the weight room" preparing for the team's bowl opponent. Which bowl game or opponent will be determined soon.
