Recently fired TCU Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson, who lead the program for 21 seasons, was fired last month. Before the university decided to do so, however, Patterson told his team that he was “untouchable,” per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, via 247Sports.

“I know what you are trying to do,” Patterson reportedly said in October, per the Telegram. “They’re not going to fire me. They’re going to fire the assistant coaches. I’m untouchable.”

Whoops.
