Hyndman is returning to college where he coached for 24 seasons at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. He won 466 career college games with the Mustangs. He took SMU to the College Cup nearly every season that he coached there.

Hyndman left FC Dallas after the 2013 season. He coached in MLS between 2008-13, where he lead FC Dallas to a MLS Cup in 2010 and was the MLS Coach of the Year in that season.
