Dykes’ announcement comes after over a month of speculation in the midst of a very public coaching search by TCU Athletic Director Jeremiah Donati and his team. The search included names like Deion Sanders, Kellen Moore, Matt Campbell, and Billy Napier, but Dykes was always considered the frontrunner.
Dykes comes to TCU after four seasons at the helm at SMU, and he leaves an incredibly salty fanbase behind. Read a full profile on Dykes right here.
While the announcement is finally official, fans now wait with anticipation as Dykes builds a coaching staff. Several assistant coaches have already been identified, and so far TCU has plenty of reason to be excited.
Dykes arrived to TCU on Monday night via helicopter, where students cheered him on, a few words were said by both Dykes and TCU Athletic Director Jeremiah Donati, and Dykes hit the Frog Horn.
