"This is home and this is a program I grew up watching. I watched Mustang legends compete and I could always see myself putting on that iconic pony. Today, I'm proud to do just that," Dykes said in a statement. "Coach Morris did great things here and I am fortunate that I have been selected to take the foundation Chad and his staff put in place and take it to a new level. And, make no mistake - that is what we plan to do."
"I am comforted, however, that I leave this program in much better shape than when I arrived four years ago," he said in a statement. "I am confident Cal will find a great coach to lead these great young men, they deserve nothing less."
