One of college football’s longest-serving head coaches Gary Patterson gave fans a Halloween trick or treat (depending on your viewpoint) by stepping down as head coach of TTCU on Sunday. He took over the Horned Frogs in 2000 just in time for their bowl game against Southern Mississippi. Although they lost that one he went on to lead them to 11 bowl wins in 17 appearances and he finished his career with them as the most successful coach to date in the school’s history.
Patterson had been their full-time head coach since 2001.
The final tally was 181 wins in 260 games and this included 17 Bowl Games in 21 seasons with the main ones being
2009 Fiesta Bowl L Boise 17-10
2010 Rose Bowl W Wisconsin 21-19
2014 Peach Bowl W Mississippi 42-3
Former Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill will be serving as interim head coach for the rest of the season.
