FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU coach Gary Patterson had been thinking about spreading out his offense since the Horned Frogs got in the Big 12 two years ago.
After four conference losses by three points or less last year Patterson knew it was time for ''truly a change of philosophy.'' He hired co-coordinators Doug Meacham from Houston and Sonny Cumbie from Texas Tech to give TCU its own version of a faster-paced spread offense so prevalent in the Big 12 and across the country.
Patterson, coming off only his second losing season in 13 years as TCU's head coach, says the ''point of this offense is to win.''
The Frogs finished 4-8 in their second Big 12 season. They lost three of their last four games, by a combined eight points.
