Report: TCU assistant Sonny Dykes now No. 1 candidate for SMU job

TCU offensive analyst Sonny Dykes is reportedly the top candidate to take over as the new head coach at cross-town rival SMU.

According to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg, Dykes “could be hired as early as Monday.”

Dykes spent the 2017 season as an offensive consultant for the Horned Frogs after being fired from his position as the head coach at Cal in January. He has a 41-45 overall record as a head coach at Louisiana Tech and Cal.

TCU hired Dykes as part of an offensive overhaul during the offseason. A former Texas Tech assistant under Mike Leach, he is known for his expertise in the Air Raid passing game.

The Frogs and Mustangs play annually in the Battle for the Iron Skillet. TCU will play at SMU in Week 2 next season on Sept. 8, 2018.

This story will be updated.
