Sonny Dykes Tennessee Volunteers next coach?

SMU head football coach Sonny Dykes may be moving to the SEC very soon. According to a new reports, Dykes is “high” on Tennessee’s list of potential candidates for their head coach opening. While on a radio appearance on 104.5 in Nashville, ESPN’s Chris Low revealed that he believes the Tennessee Volunteers’ interest in Sonny Dykes is very real.

“I think Sonny Dykes is high on Tennessee’s list,” Low said, via 247Sports. “He’s a bit of a niche offensive guy. His offenses have had a lot of success. He coached in the Power Five. Didn’t have a lot of success at Cal. He had one decent year there. He had some success at Louisiana Tech. I think, when you look at SMU, he’s sort of helped turn that program around. I think they won 10 games two years ago, which is the most they’ve won there since 1984.

“I think he’s a guy that Tennessee is going to look at pretty hard. I’m not saying he’s going to get the job, but he’s certainly in the mix.”

Sonny Dykes has been around. He started his head coaching career at Louisiana Tech, then coached at Cal. He has been the coach at SMU since 2017. This year, Dykes led the SMU squad to a 7-3 record.

I don’t know, if I’m a Vols fan I don’t really think Sonny Dykes would excite me too much. The guy has an overall record of 63-59 as a head coach. Do you really think that guy would make Tennessee competitive with the Alabamas, LSUs and Georgias of the conference. Yeah, probably not.

Then again, I don’t really think anyone has much faith in the Tennessee Volunteers program to make the right hire.
