With the recent firing of head coach Trent Johnson last week, TCU has reached a deal with Jamie Dixon. Dixon, who played at TCU from 1984-1987, had taken his Pitt team to the tournament 11 times in 13 years. So why would a coach from a contender in the ACC want to make a jump to a team who hasn’t made the tourney in over 15 years? The reasons are obvious starting with the fact that the athletic director who hired him is no longer there. Also, despite his consistent success of making the tourney many fans were still hung up on the fact that he had only reached the Sweet 16 twice. That however is the short version of the reasons why Dixon is making the jump. This deal could give rise to a new contender in the Big 12.
