This is a bit surprising. TCU has had a few down years compared to what fans usually expect, but Patterson is by far and away the best coach in program history.
TCU and coach Gary Patterson have agreed to mutually part ways. Jerry Kill to serve as interim coach.

I guess the past few seasons just weren’t good enough and the people with the power decided it was time for him to go.
It’s another blunt reminder that things can change quickly in the world of college football. Other than a very small group of coaches, nobody is totally safe.

Now, we’ll see who TCU targets next. They have money and they’re in the Big 12. My guess is they’ll get a solid name. Life sure does come at you fast!
