TCU co-OC Sonny Cumbie said, "The people at TCU have made it really clear they want us there."
On December 7, Cumbie was reportedly offered a three-year contract from Texas to serve as their offensive coordinator. He opted not to jump ship. Cumbie and his wife are expecting a son in February and he indicated a move would have been a difficult sell to the family. Beyond that, he's comfortable in Fort Worth. Said the 34-year-old, "I believe in Coach Patterson, the foundation of things he's done here. I believe in our kids, Dallas-Fort Worth, what a great place to recruit to. Our facilities are second to none. They're not as big, but just as nice." Fri, Jan 1, 2016 10:18:00 PM

TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie's "relative lack of experience is an issue, but if [Trevone] Boykin and TCU's offense put up the numbers expected of them, there likely will be an AD (or two or three) willing to overlook that," writes NFL Media.

The 33-year-old led the nation in passing in 2004 as a senior at Texas Tech (4,742 yards). Cumbie joined Mike Leach's staff at his alma mater in 2009 as a grad assistant and became the Red Raiders' inside receivers coach in 2011. Kliff Kingsbury promoted him to co-coordinator in 2013 and then Cumbie moved on. "Last season was his first at TCU, and as the Horned Frogs' quarterback coach, he is given a lot of credit for the strong play of Trevone Boykin," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin.

TCU hired Texas Tech assistant coach Sonny Cumbie as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Cumbie, of course, is a former Red Raiders quarterback. He is leaving TTU because Gary Patterson offered more input over the game plan, as well as the opportunity to tutor quarterbacks. "It was just a really good opportunity within the profession for me to make a move," said Cumbie, who was the receivers coach at Tech. "It just so happened to be to a conference opponent." Patterson has been working diligently this winter to revamp his sorry offense. He already hired former Houston offensive coordinator Doug Meachem to be the Frogs' primary play-caller.
