TCU Takes to Austin

Updated: Thursday, May 15 2014, 11:45 PM CDT

TCU's purple and white invaded burnt orange country Thursday night. The Austin Chapter of the TCU Alumni Association hosted "Coaches Night" at The Rattle Inn.

Frogs backers were able to meet and greet several TCU coaches including Women’s Soccer Coach Eric Bell, Men’s Basketball Coach Trent Johnson, Head Volleyball Coach Prentice Lewis, Head Football Coach Gary Patterson, new Women’s Basketball Coach Raegan Pebley, and Men’s Tennis Coach David Roditi.

"Austin is a great place to come to," said TCU head men's basketball coach Trent Johnson. "But more importantly we have a great donor base and great fan base down here."

"I like coming for the music," admitted head football coach Gary Patterson. "Obviously I'm one of those kind of guys and hanging out here on sixth street always makes it a lot of fun."

Last year was NOT fun for Coach Patterson and his team. A 4-and-8 campaign ended a school-record run of eight straight bowl trips. The Frogs are primed for a bounce back in 2014.

"We lost five games by seven points or less last year," Patterson pointed out. "So really, it was more of 'how can we grow our team so we can change those five games?'. If you change those five games, that's nine wins. So how do you want to go forward from there? For us it's good that we play 10 games in the state of Texas. The schedule is a lot better. The last two years we've had to play five games on the road in the Big 12.

Thursday's "Coaches Night" supports the Austin Chapter’s TCU Scholarship fund.
