Darrell Ray Dickey (born December 6, 1959) is an assistant American football coach at Texas A&M University. Before joining the Texas A&M staff he was the offensive coordinator at Memphis from the 2012 to 2017 seasons, the offensive coordinator at Texas State for the 2011 season, and at the University of New Mexico for the 2009 and 2010 seasons. He was head coach of the University of North Texas from 1998 to 2006. During the 13 years prior to his stint at North Texas, Dickey was an assistant at SMU, UTEP, LSU, Mississippi State, Memphis, and Texas A&M. Subsequent to his tenure at North Texas, he was an assistant at Utah State and New Mexico. Dickey was a quarterback in college, playing for his father, Jim Dickey, at Kansas State University. Coached by Dickey, North Texas won the 2002 New Orleans Bowl. The win highlighted a four-year period (2001–2004) during which the Mean Green became only the 11th program in college football history to win four consecutive conference titles. Dickey comes from a family of coaches. His father, Jim Dickey, was a successful college and Texas high school coach for over 40 years. Brother Jim Dickey Jr., has coached in Texas high schools for over 30 years. In 2006, despite being fired by the University of North Texas, a donor requested that school officials name the new football practice facility in honor of him. The donor did not want to have his own name branded on the practice fields, but believed the program's accomplishments under his leadership deemed Dickey worthy of the naming rights.
