Here's the official press release:

TCU head football coach Gary Patterson has announced the naming of Kenny Perry as cornerbacks coach.

Perry joined the TCU football staff in March 2013 as its director of high school relations and recruiting.

"Kenny was an unbelievable addition to our program from a recruiting perspective and how well liked he is by our players," Patterson said. "Kenny was very successful as a high school coach. It's a positive because there are so many good high school coaches in the state."

Perry came to the Horned Frogs after serving seven seasons (2006-12) as head football coach at Bowie High School in Arlington, Texas. While there, he coached current Horned Frogs Kolby Listenbee and Steve Wesley.

Prior to his tenure at Bowie, Perry was also head coach at Haltom High School (2004-05) and Arlington Sam Houston (2000-03). He has 22 years of coaching experience.

A three-time District Coach of the Year, Perry was the 2007 Dallas Morning News Coach of the Year. He was also a six-time selection as the Dallas Cowboys Coach of the Week. In 2010, Perry was selected to the Board of Directors for the Texas High School Coaches Association. He has also been the director of the North Texas High School Football Association.

A 1993 graduate of the University of Houston, Perry was a four-year letterman (1988-91) as a defensive back for the Cougars. Perry was a cornerback his freshman and sophomore seasons before being moved to safety his final two years. He also served as a graduate assistant for Houston from 1992-94, working with the special teams and defensive backs.
