FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- TCU coach Gary Patterson has agreed to a new contract that runs through the 2014 season.

The deal announced Thursday came a few weeks after strong speculation that Kansas State was interested in hiring Patterson to lead his alma mater. The Wildcats eventually brought Bill Snyder out of retirement.

TCU didn't release terms of the contract. The Frogs went 11-2 and handed Boise State its only loss with a 17-16 victory in the Poinsettia Bowl. It was TCU's fourth 11-win season in the past six years.

The 48-year-old Patterson has won at least 10 games in five of his eight seasons and has a 73-27 record. No other TCU coach had more than two 10-win seasons.
