TCU on Sunday surprisingly parted ways with Gary Patterson as head coach even though he had been extremely successful at the school. Though the Horned Frogs were 3-5 this season, Patterson’s firing was surprising; few saw it coming.

Maybe TCU was concerned with the trajectory of the football program the last four seasons. Since going 11-3 in 2017, the team has gone: 7-6, 5-7, 6-5 and now 3-5. Perhaps TCU had its eyes on a replacement and their need to pursue him triggered the midseason move. At least that’s what we think.

See, another Texas school recently fired their head coach: Texas Tech. The Red Raiders fired Matt Wells a week ago and are looking for a new coach.

Sonny Dykes, who has SMU 7-1 this season, was believed to be a top target for Texas Tech. But guess what? TCU reportedly has Dykes as their No. 1 target.

Our guess is that TCU pushed aside Patterson so they could slip in and hire Dykes before Texas Tech got him. Others feel the same.

In the past, Dykes raved about the TCU job, indicating that might be something he wants.

The Star-Telegram reported last week that SMU officials expected Dykes to leave for another job after the season. With the way things are going, Dykes may have another job within weeks. And Texas Tech might have to consider alternatives.
