Patterson Turned Down Minnesota Offer

Minnesota reportedly made an 11th-hour bid to snare Gary Patterson, right, from Texas Christian before it offered the job to Tim Brewster, the Denver Broncos assistant who accepted. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Minnesota offered a package worth $2.3 million to get Patterson, who acknowledged to the paper that he talked with Minnesota officials. Texas Christian athletic director Danny Morrison declined to comment on whether Patterson's contract was being reworked as incentive for him to stay at the school. The paper also reported that Patterson earlier turned down an offer from Iowa State. Last year Patterson's name was connected with the opening at Kansas State. Photo is courtesy of Image of Sport.
