Gary Patterson responds to negative recruiting from opponents
Gary Patterson sent a tweet on Sunday to hit back at negative recruiting from opponents.
The TCU Horned Frogs head coach thanked the program’s fans who supported the team for their 16-9 road win at Baylor a day earlier. More importantly, he ensured recruits that he is not retiring after the season.
Thanks to all the Frog family out there who watched or joined us in Waco thank you! The guys played hard! To all the recruiters out there who are saying I am retiring after Oklahoma State so our commits would visit you, you aren't that lucky! Lol Go Frogs!

TCU is 5-6 and faces Oklahoma State on Saturday in their final regular season game.
Patterson, 58, has been TCU’s head coach since 2001 and built the program into a power. His teams have had eight top-15 finishes and have gone 10-6 in bowl games. Since joining the Big 12 2012, the Horned Frogs have had four double-digit win seasons, but also four middling seasons. They’re in danger of finishing below .500 for the third time since 2012.
