Gary Patterson

In 2009, Patterson has guided the Horned Frogs to a 12-0 record, No. 3 national ranking and their first BCS appearance as TCU will face Boise State Jan. 4 in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. TCU is 12-0 for the first time in its history. The 2009 campaign saw the Frogs complete their first perfect regular season since the 1938 national championship team.

The dean of Mountain West Conference coaches, Patterson has led TCU to at least 10 wins six times in the last eight years, including five 11-win campaigns since 2003. No other coach in TCU history has more than two 10-win campaigns.

In addition to the George Munger Coach of the Year Award, Patterson has been won the Walter Camp, Sporting News, and Woody Hayes Coach of the Year Awards this past season.
