Former TCU wide receiver Kolby Listenbee dropped a bombshell lawsuit last month, alleging that Frogs head coach Gary Patterson bullied him into returning from a pelvis injury earlier than medically responsible, in the process ruining Listenbee's professional career.
Saying that he looked forward to telling TCU's side of the story in the future, Patterson told Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning Newsthat, "Without really talking about it, I guess I was a little bit hurt, because ... 36 years, I'm one of those coaches that put everything in my life into kids - growing them up, giving them an opportunity."
"Bottom line to it is that it's always been about the program," he continued. "It's never been about winning. Winning is important but never in front of someone's health."
Five other former Frogs have since joined Listenbee's suit, so this story is not going away any time soon.
