FWST: TCU gives Gary Patterson extension to 2022, raise to $4.7 million

Aiming to secure its most successful football coach ever, TCU has awarded Gary Patterson a contract extension to 2022 that also makes him one of the highest-paid coaches in the country.

The extension announced Tuesday takes Patterson, the school’s football victories leader, to age 62 in Fort Worth. A person close to Patterson said he will be paid $4.7 million annually guaranteed with incentives, such as making the College Football Playoff or winning the coming Big 12 championship game, that could push him over $5 million.

“I don’t do this because of money,” Patterson said after practice Tuesday. “It’s about job security for my staff, it’s about showing recruits that TCU’s committed to the long haul and what we want to get accomplished and for us to keep moving forward as a program and as a university.”
