Gary Patterson signs contract extension through 2022

Gary Patterson is one of the best coaches in the Big 12 today and he should continue to be just that for the TCU Horned Frogs going into the future. The team announced he had signed a contract extension to keep him around through the 2022 season.

Athletic director Chris Del Conte announced that Patterson, the winningest coach in TCU history, signed the extension on Tuesday and would be with the school for the next six seasons.

Gary Patterson is synonymous with TCU and Fort Worth,” Del Conte said. “His value to our community goes 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!”

Gary Patterson officially became head coach ahead of the team’s bowl game in 2000, losing the Mobile Alabama Bowl. He is 143-47 in 15 seasons with TCU and has won six conference championships (one Conference USA, four Mountain West, one Big 12) and appeared in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl, 2010 Rose Bowl and the 2014 Peach Bowl.
