Today’s U: TCU’s Gary Patterson has earned high regard

By Wendell Barnhouse

When it takes you just two decades to go from a relative unknown assistant coach to having a statue in front of the stadium, you’ve earned all the contract extensions.

TCU announced Tuesday that it has extended its agreement with coach Gary Patterson for two seasons. Patterson’s contract now runs through 2022. Just two seasons ago, athletic director Chris Del Conte gave Patterson a two-year extension that was through 2020.

Del Conte said the move wasn’t so much to try and lock down Patterson to prevent him from looking at other jobs.

“No, it had nothing to do with that,” he said. “This has been in the works for a long time. We just worked out the particulars and ensured that Coach Patterson is a Frog until he desires to retire.”
