TCU opens its doors to New Orleans Saints:

TCU will become the New Orleans Saints’ practice home for the foreseeable future as the NFL team deals with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida in its home city.

The Saints are expected to start practicing at TCU on Monday and continue to do so until they’re able to return to their facilities in Louisiana. There is no timeline for now.

TCU coach Gary Patterson expressed interest in hosting the Saints earlier this week and issued a statement once it became official on Wednesday. Patterson and Saints coach Sean Payton have a relationship with Payton’s son Connor attending TCU and working as a student assistant in the football office. Payton attended TCU’s pro day in the spring.

“The state of Louisiana, just like Texas, means a lot to us,” Patterson said in a statement. “Many of our past and present players are from there, and we recruit the entire state. The New Orleans Saints are very important to the people in Louisiana, and that’s why they’re important to us. My relationship with Saints Head Coach Sean Payton is also very important to me. Coach Payton has always given our players a good look and this year spent time personally visiting with them at our Pro Day. The entire Saints organization, under Mrs. Gayle Benson, is first class and has always treated TCU and our NFL players great.”

We went on a recruiting trip there with my older son. He ended up swimming at UNO. They have awesome facilities. We got the full tour. The coach said their weight facility was better than many professional ones. Extremely impressive.
