There was a rumor that Orlando had interviewed and that he was in the lead (guessing his agent put that out there; same agent as Herman). Then, Herman said that Orlando hadn’t interviewed. No matter, defensive head coaches don’t usually work out well at SMU.
Dykes is a good hire, but it’ll be interesting to see how many players stick around. Saw a lot of grumbling from players after the hire (especially with many learning via media reports instead of through the department) and the fans are worried that Sutton is going to declare early. Some of our commits that flipped their last year aren’t happy. Did see that Dykes will cobble together a staff and coach their bowl game.
Can’t see him at Tech unless he gets the Ponies into competing for the AAC title in a year or two. Got a feeling that Tech may go after Orlando next year if they let Kingsbury go. Fans are tired of all offense, no defense.
