What are the odds of Gary Patterson . . .

What are the odds of Gary Patterson . . . 


. . . coaching at Arkansas next year?

I say 95% that he stays, 5% that he goes. The 5% is basically me saying, "Never say never." Not really worried about him leaving TCU, though, all kinds of reasons to stay (wife, money, legend status already achieved, etc.).

Arky doesn't scare me especially since he already turned that job down.

I dont see your coach going anywhere... unless HE wants too.  The above post is on the money...this (TCU) is his best fit unless or until he is ready to accept a new challenge... but he sures seems at home at TCU.

Funny..listen to the KSU OSU game the other night while working in Oklahoma on OSU radio... the call in after show had a few Arky fans calling in throwing his name around, and believe it or not- Bob Stoops... but mainly their fan base was locked in on Patterson, Charlie Strong and Butch Davis... even talk that they could pay 6.1m a year to Gruden or NFL coaches, etc....

I think you are safe in keepin coach... looking forward to a good, clean and injury free game Saturday!

People have the ability to live up to- or down to, whatever expectation you have of them....

Never say never. I think 95% stay, 5% head to Arkansas is a logical guess.

There may be a 5% chance he goes somewhere, but there is more like a .000001% chance he goes to Arkansas.

Agreed that he ain't going anywhere, but if he ever was, why not Arkansas? Does he have something against money, top tier facilities, best conference in football, and the Ozark National Forest?

Like I said, 95% sure he'll stay. BUT, if he ever considered leaving . . . this is exactly what it would take.

The last issue of Fort Worth Magazine, was entirely on Gary Patterson.  I'm not going to hunt down the article in there, but GP stated that TCU would be his last job. 

That's enough for me.

It is Auburn and Texas that you should be concerned about.   We would take Patterson in a heart beat when Mack leaves.

Hello guys I come in peace Im a razorback but live in Fort Worth yes I heard the news today that he was the leading guy for the job and it came from a pretty reliable source. Yes we are in need of a great coach and yes you guys do have him my only thing that makes me scratch my head is you guys can't fill a stadium for some reason the city of Fort Worth does not support that program like it should and the only reason he leaves is that he wants to have a packed stadium week in week out  and does he have a ego because If he does he will be gone in a heart beat because every coach wants to be the one that takes Saban and Miles down so If he wants to compete with the big boys he will leave and plus the money will be off the chart for him including the incentives. But you guys know your coach better than we do and good luck against K-State I will be at the game

I'd say for a city full of alumni from Texas, aTm, Baylor, and some from Texas Tech, OU, etc., TCU has a ton of support from Fort Worth. Maybe not 10 years ago, but since the rise in quality before and during the two BCS bowl years, you see a lot of local support for the Frogs.

Re: What are the odds of Gary Patterson . . . 


He's already legendary at TCU. I think there's a small sliver of a chance he goes to Arkansas (I DID start this thread lol), but reasons like Fort worth doesn't support TCU or he wants to take Saban and Miles down aren't the reasons that convince me.

The stadium was packed last night and the atmosphere was great. He has put too much into this program to let someone else reap the benefits. What connection does he have to Arky... None. I'm sorry but Arky offers nothing that TCU doesn't. Big 12 and SEC are basically the same.

Never say never, that's all I'm saying with 95-5.

But, how would he be letting someone else reap the benefits? He's had an undefeated season, won the Rose bowl, coached in 2 BCS bowls, beat Boise twice in the last several years (rare!), won several conference championships, etc. etc. I think he's already reaped the benefits of his own hard work.

SEC from top to bottom is better than the Big XII. the Big XII is a close second, but numbers alone (14 teams to 10 teams) ensure that the SEC has more quality teams. Plus the top teams of the SEC are deeper than the top tier of the Big XII.

I know everyone's a homer at the end of the day, but I don't see the Big XII sitting on 6 straight national championships.

RE: What are the odds of Gary Patterson . . . 


Well considering how A&M couldn't anything in the Big 12 but somehow miraculously is now a bad *** in the SEC kind of makes you wonder about the strength of the two conferences. Also go to the pay site and the traffic is a lot different. If he wants a larger fan base then he could go to damn near any college in the NCAA. Why did he turn down interviews and jobs from TN, Arky, Michigan, MN, KState, Notre Dame... I am tired of arguing this point and people are going to believe what they want to believe.

Well one thing for sure he is going to get the chance to turn it down because he will get the offer and the money will beon the table I believe you guys are paying him around the 3 million mark.  I tell you this Jeff Long is going to throw alot of cash at him and the Incentives will be off the chart

You will not out pay TCU so if that is your Golden Bullet you are screwed. 3M is what he makes through the university. With Oil/Gas deals it is closer to or north of 5M.

A site's size has nothing to do with it, and FWIW this isn't the main board here, the premium has 100 times the topics this free board does.

Also, whatever GP gets offered from Arkansas would be matched by TCU in 5 minutes. They funded a 164 mil stadium through donations, no debt. Not saying Arkansas can't offer a lot of money too, hell JJ is right down the road and we all know he has big pockets. But, I always laugh at the notion that people don't think TCU can match what big schools offer. If he ever leaves TCU, it won't be because of money. Trust me.

Now, let me tell you what I know from covering the team for 8 years and building multiple sources in that time. GP will not be the coach at Arkansas next year. He's not leaving TCU (not after this year anyway), the best news for him is that Arkansas is mentioning him as the leading candidate because that gives him all kinds of leverage. I'm sure none of us have told our bosses we're never leaving...there would go our raises. He likes being where he is, he likes the Big 12 more than the SEC and he's seen what guys in his position, Dan Hawkins, Dennis Franchione, to name a few have gone through when leaving for what they feel are greener pastures.

Good grief get off the "we can pay more crap".  No you can't!  TCU is a private university without state regulations and huge amounts of old money that can pay anything they want.  7 phone calls went out to raise 165,000,000$ in 30 days to rebuild a stadium that has been described as "The Camden Yards of college football".

You won't be able to buy him so move on to the real candidates who you may have a real chance at hiring.

No offense, but IF you are going to play the game, you don't stand a chance. We have the Waltons (Wal Mart), the Tysons (Tyson Foods), and JB Hunt all in our pocket. Not to mention good ole JJ and Warren Stephens (Stephens Inc.) All in the billions. Hell each of the Waltons are worth around $20B each. That's not even getting down to the regular fans. We can pay whatever we want to pay.

Like I said earlier, TCU will match whatever Arkansas offers...if they do. Plus, another point I mentioned earlier is it won't be money that draws him away.

Here's another tidbit, before TCU moved the Big 12 believe it or not there were some discussions about TCU trying to get into the SEC. It didn't take long to find out GP wasn't a big fan of TCU playing in the SEC. That's from people as high up in the program at TCU as there can be.

Yea Jeremy, but no one from SEC country wants to believe that those conversations took place and that Arkansas and LSU were the ones leading the charge. 

By the way TCU has plenty of those billionaires that you are so proud to spout about.  The difference is they don't see the need to flaunt it.  It's called oil money.

Re: What are the odds of Gary Patterson . . . 


Jeremy hope all is well and do believe money will one of the main factors one quick question would you leave If you got offered an extra 2.3 million dollars. Another thing that will be into play will be his other half if he is married If she wants out of there that will play almost 40% of the decision.  Also TCU will not be able to match the money that Arkansas will fork up they will make him a top 5 coach with pay. But we shall see in about 2 weeks does he want to leave or not
