Football, family go hand-in-hand
While head coaches are usually the person in the limelight come football season, it can also be noted that the woman behind the man is just as important.
Kate Dykes, wife of Louisiana Tech head football coach Sonny Dykes, said she is just as busy being the coach’s wife.
“We have an unwritten schedule that we go by each week,” she said. “Monday nights are late nights. On Tuesday nights during the season (other coaches’ wives and I) have cookie night for the players where we each sack up little Ziplocs for them to have when they get out of practice. Wednesday night we’ll have a casserole or something like that and Thursday night we have a kind of family night.”
