Dykes Close to Texas Tech Job. Via reddit, Sonny Dykes was apparently on a radio show or possibly a podcast, and said that he was close to being hired as the the Texas Tech head coach. I haven’t had time to listen so I’ll need someone to help out. I’m not sure if this was maybe after the 2018 season when Kliff Kingsbury won the Texas game to continue or possibly when Kingsbury was hired, but we had been told that Chad Morris was the second candidate.
Holcomb Commits. I’ll have a commitment post coming up later today as John Holcomb, a tight end from Wellington High School, committed last night.
