Gary Patterson signed a two-year contract extension on Tuesday that makes him the head coach of TCU’s football program through 2022. Details of the extension have not been released, which is a standard move for TCU when doing something of this nature.

Patterson is widely heralded as one of the best coaches in the game, and his extension drew praise from local and national media, as well as some fun facts about Patterson’s tenure at TCU.

Patterson is the all-time winningest coach at TCU, with 143 wins, and already has a statue up near Amon G. Carter stadium (much to his dismay). TCU moved from Conference USA, to the Mountain West, to the Big East, to the Big 12 all while Patterson was at the helm, which is a testament to the work he’s done to build this program into what is is.

Obviously this is great news for TCU fans, for the football program, for the university, and for the city of Fort Worth. It’s a well-earned extension for a man who has done so much for the Horned Frogs.
