A sports director at a Shreveport television station offered this up today:
this just gets crazier and crazier. my source indicates Sonny Dykes interviewed for NC State AND Cal jobs... in Chicago... hours apart.— Tim Fletcher (@FletcherKTBS) November 30, 2012
But then Mark Thomas was all like LOL you wrong, son.
@fletcherktbs Your source would be wrong.— Mark Thomas (@markthomas24) November 30, 2012
It does seem dubious given that Chad Morris' interview reportedly took place in Atlanta and Dykes met with NCSU on that same day. Not likely that Debbie Yow was meeting someone in Atlanta and then high-tailin' it to Chicago, but hey, this is an NC State coaching search. She could have been meeting with Batman for all we know.
There is also this from a Cal Bears beat writer:
Source in Louisiana tells me he'd bet his 1962 Mickey Mantle baseball card La Tech's Sonny Dykes is hired by N.C. State.— Jeff Faraudo (@CalBearsBANG) November 30, 2012
That's quite a bit of certainty from that Louisiana-based source. In fact it's like six figures' worth of certainty, so let's all welcome Sonny Dykes! Maybe! I'm still calling it a definite maybe, pending this MAC championship game. Dave Doeren. Darrell Hazell. I'm so confused right now.
