A major head coach says that rival programs are spreading false rumors about him heading into the end of the 2018 regular season.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson to Twitter to reveal that recruiters from other major programs are telling kids that he's retiring.

Patterson has clapped back at the rumors.

"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!" he tweeted.

It's pretty rare to see a major head coach take to Twitter to address something like that.

TCU hasn't had a good 2018 season, but few head coaches are more accomplished than Patterson. The Horned Frogs will be lucky to have him back in 2019.
