Following the resignation of Sonny Dykes as Louisiana Tech’s head football coach Thursday, Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau has assembled a search committee to immediately begin the process of identifying and interviewing potential candidates to fill the head coach position and continue moving the Louisiana Tech football program forward.
The search committee will be chaired by Dr. Les Guice, Louisiana Tech’s president-elect, and current executive vice president and vice president for research and development.
Guice’s leadership will ensure the process involves a university-wide strategic focus and that decisions made by the committee are in the best interest of the growth and stability of the entire institution. The diversity in composition of the committee will ensure representation from across the campus. “We are moving swiftly, but carefully in our search for a new head football coach,” said Reneau. “In addition to finding someone to lead our football program forward, we also seek someone who meets the high standards that we have for those who lead our student-athletes and someone who will represent Louisiana Tech University with passion, integrity and character.”
Dan Parker and Associates of Atlanta, Georgia will assist the search committee in the identification and vetting of coaching candidates.
