Sonny Dykes
247 VIP listed hot coaches and their salaries.

Dykes only makes $875k in base a year at SMU.

We pay $2.7M

Based on pay Sonny might be a good target for Memphis if Norvell leaves.

I don't care for him and I, for some reason, don't like his name.

SMU is a private school. They don't have to release salary details. The base salary is never the true salary. In 10 seasons at La Tech, Cal and SMU Dykes has had 4 winning seasons. You would have to see if this season is a fluke first.

RE: Sonny Dykes
We don't want an older guy like Dykes who signed so many grad transfers. It doesn't build a program, or even sustain one. If MN leaves & I don't think this will be the year, we should stick with the same approach & sign a young, talented OC from a successful program who knows how to recruit & has come up through the ranks of small & large programs.

RE: Sonny Dykes
I think his key to success this year was the tranfer portal. I would question if that is a sure fire way to build a Memphis football program. SMU had 16 transfers in 2019 and their recruiting class ranked #3 in the AAC and #68 nationally. Sonny was smart enough to take advantage of an opportunity. Of course, having a masters degree from SMU is something that is very marketable that worked to his favor.

Yeah, that's just the base. They're not reporting total pay.

I wouldn't mind seeing Eill Hall added to the list.
He's running our offense at Tulane.
