Analyst Could See Gary Patterson Leaving TCU For Texas A&M

It's the one job he could see the elite head coach leaving for.

Gary Patterson has been at TCU since 2000.

During that time, the 57-year-old head coach has been one of the best in the country, leading the Horned Frogs to 11-plus win seasons six times since 2009.

He's been mentioned for other jobs countless times, but has yet to leave.

Will he ever?

An NBC Sports college football insider can think of one job he might leave TCU for - Texas A&M.

From the Dallas News:

Question: Is there any job that could lure Gary Patterson away from TCU?

Scruggs: If Texas A&M were to open up and they gave Gary Patterson an offer ... Hmmm.

Patterson is a defensive guy and when is the last time "The Wrecking Crew" was "The Wrecking Crew?"

Patterson is one of the best coaches in America, and if there was a job I could see him leaving the Frogs for, it would be A&M. Now, if he would ask me if he should go, I would tell Gary to stay at TCU, where he is the all-time winningest head coach, and get his 20 years in.

Kevin Sumlin is believed to be on the hot seat this fall, so we could get an answer to this question pretty soon.
