Tech happy to keep Dykes on board
Whoa, that was close.
Sonny Dykes was awarded earlier this week with a contact extension that will keep him as the head football coach at Louisiana Tech University until 2017.
But it was practically a “two-minute drill” by university officials that kept the son of former legendary Texas Tech Head Coach Spike Dykes in Bulldogs’ country for the next five seasons.
On the heels of making a strong push for Dykes was the University of Houston, who is seeking a successor to Kevin Sumlin, who guided the Cougars’ Conference USA team to a Top 25 national ranking this season.
