Former Cal head coach Sonny Dykes joins TCU staff

In an interesting move, the former head coach will now be a part of TCU’s coaching staff.

TCU’s coaching staff seems to be complete, after Jeremy Clark of broke news on Sunday afternoon that former Cal head coach Sonny Dykes will be on the TCU sidelines next season.

As Clark states, Dykes’ role is still undetermined. Dykes spent the past four seasons (2013-2016) as Cal’s head coach, prior to which he was the head coach for three seasons at Louisiana Tech.

Dykes is a Texas native, and got his coaching start at J.J. Pearce High School, in Richardson. Dykes also spent time at Texas Tech as the wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator.

This raises questions about the roles of the rest of the offensive staff, specifically with how it will impact Curtis Luper. There’s no doubt though that adding a name like Dykes to the staff will have an impact in recruiting, as well as on the field.
