Report: Patterson staying at TCU
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU and coach Gary Patterson have agreed to terms on a long-term contract extension, according to two sources close to the situation. An official announcement is expected Wednesday morning.
The sources both said part of the agreement includes pay increases for his assistant coaches.
Patterson, in his 12th season at TCU and ninth as head coach, has an 85-27 record in his tenure. That includes TCU's 12-0 record this season, the school's first undefeated campaign since 1938.
The Horned Frogs are No. 4 in the BCS standings and are expected to play in the first BCS bowl in the program's history. Patterson is one of three finalists for the George Munger Award, given by the Maxwell Football Club to the national coach of the year.
Patterson has been mentioned among possible candidates to replace Charlie Weis for the vacant Notre Dame job, but a TCU official said Monday that the coach had not been contacted.
