Jamie Dixon Steps Down At Pitt To Become TCU’s New Basketball Coach
University of Pittsburgh head basketball coach Jamie Dixon is headed to his alma mater, TCU, where he played on the Horned Frogs team that won an NCAA tournament game nearly three decades ago. TCU hired Dixon on Monday, a week after Trent Johnson was fired after only eight Big 12 Conference wins in his four seasons. TCU will introduce Dixon as its new coach during a news conference Tuesday. Dixon was 328-123 at Pitt, where he led the Panthers to Big East regular-season titles in 2004 and 2011 before the school moved to the Athletic Coast Conference three years ago. Pitt was 21-12 this season and lost to Wisconsin 47-43 on Friday in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
