Around the world of college football, Gary Patterson is known for coaching pretty mean defense.
Closer to home in Fort Worth, fans have long known he can pick a mean guitar, too.
The longtime TCU coach gave an audience in Memphis a glimpse of his musical skill Monday night, strumming out a tune at a Liberty Bowl welcoming dinner for him and Georgia coach Kirby Smart.
“Well your momma don’t dance and your daddy don’t rock ’n’ roll,” he sang in a video tweeted out by the Liberty Bowl.
It was a short set. With a smile and a nod, he returned to his seat.
And probably got back to thinking about the game plan.
TCU (6-6) and Georgia (7-5) meet Dec. 30 in an 11 a.m. kickoff in Memphis.
