NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — TCU coach Gary Patterson has been named the college football coach of the year by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

The annual award is voted on by the nation's 125 Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors.

Patterson, who is TCU's winningest coach with 131-45 record in 14 seasons, led the Horned Frogs to an 11-1 record this season and the Big 12 title.

The 54-year-old also won the award in 2009, and joins former Penn State coach Joe Paterno (1972, 1994 and 2005) and Oklahoma's Bob Stoops (2000 and 2003) as multiple winners.

The Horned Frogs (11-1) play Mississippi (9-3) in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.

Patterson will be honored at the foundation's national awards banquet on January 17 at Yale.
