Dallas Morning News’ Joseph Hoyt | Reports: Sonny Dykes to leave SMU for rival TCU; Mustangs to hire Miami OC Rhett Lashlee

The wheel of realignment turned in a major way this college football season, starting with Texas and Oklahoma’s departure from the Big 12 to the Southeastern Conference. That opened the door for SMU to possibly go to the Big 12, but the conference passed over the Mustangs, electing to go with BYU, Cincinnati, UCF and Houston. People around SMU believe the chance to join a Power Five could come the next time realignment happens, but it’s no guarantee.

At TCU, Dykes will have that Power Five ticket. He’ll also have the chance to build TCU the way he built SMU. He can recruit locally for Fort Worth’s team. He even could add billboards along Dallas-Fort Worth highways as a part of a possible born and raised campaign at TCU.

Speaking of billboards: SMU added one in Fort Worth after the 42-35 win over the Horned Frogs this season. “Pony up, Fort Worth,” it said, featuring Tarrant County natives Alan Ali, Mike Williams and Rashee Rice, who added trash talk to the rivalry game in the week leading up to it, and then attempted to plant SMU’s flag on TCU’s logo after it.

Dykes departing SMU for Power Five pastures was always going to be a possibility. To do it at TCU — a school where he worked as an analyst in 2017 before joining SMU — will undoubtedly add a whole new storyline to the Iron Skillet rivalry between the two teams.
