Here's a look at a side of Gary Patterson you've never seen

If you were to compile a list of the top 20 coaches in major college football that you could see strumming a guitar and carrying a decent tune, chances are pretty good that Gary Patterson wouldn't make that initial list (it's important to note that Dave Doeren can hold his own with a guitar as well).

While Patterson is better known in the coaching community as being the animated sideline personality and defensive mastermind behind the rise of the popular 4-2-5, the Star-Telegram got a great look at the TCU head coach off the field and got a rare glimpse at the musical side of him.

Below is one of the videos that the Star-Telegram was fortunate enough to capture where Patterson sings "Small Town Saturday Night" by Hal Ketchum. He carries a tune quite well we might add.

The full article from the Star Telegram has plenty of insight into the mind of Gary Patterson, his coaching style and his personal life.

Enjoy this one while you can, because come Saturday against LSU (in a match up of two top 20 teams), you're going to see a very different side of Patterson, and one that we have come to know and love as coaches.
