DYK that there are watch lists for coach awards now?


Gary Patterson, the long leader of the TCU Horned Frogs, has been named to the watch list for the Dodd Trophy, awarded annually to "the head coach of a team who enjoys success on the gridiron, while also stressing the importance of scholarship, leadership and integrity – the three pillars of legendary coach Bobby Dodd’s coaching philosophy." Patterson has already won the award once, in 2009. Three other Big 12 coaches are named to the watch list: Lincoln Riley of Oklahoma, Mike Gundy at Oklahoma State, and Tom Herman of Texas. Let's hope the Horned Frogs have the kind of season that vaults him to the top of the list and helps him bring it home for a second time!
