TCU extends Gary Patterson's contract through 2022

  Gary Patterson isn't going anywhere, as TCU awarded him with a new deal through 2022.

For 16 years and 143 victories, Gary Patterson has led the way for the TCU program. On Tuesday, it became clear that it will not be changing anytime soon.

TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte announced that Patterson has been re-signed to a contract that will last through the 2022 season.

“Gary Patterson is synonymous with TCU and Forth Worth,” Del Conte said in a press release. “His value to our community goes way beyond the football field. It’s obviously a great day for our Horned Frogs family when Coach Patterson reiterates that TCU and Fort Worth are his home.”

Patterson is already the all-time winningest coach at TCU, and that record should be at an awe-inspiring margin by the time all is said and done. The program has enjoyed a particularly high level of success in the last few seasons, including back-to-back top 10 finishes. The Horned Frogs are 23-3 over those couple of years.

Patterson is the third-longest tenured current FBS head coach, trailing only Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops and Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, who each took their respective jobs in 1998, two years before Patterson.

TCU came in at No. 14 in the Amway USA TODAY preseason coaches poll, and its season is set to begin on Sept. 3 with a home game against South Dakota State.
