    Jamie Dixon to TCU?

    TCU's move to Big 12 could help land Pitt's Jamie Dixon | Dallas-Fort Worth Sports News - Spo...

    Re: Jamie Dixon to TCU?

    Why would he leave Pitt unless there is something that I am missing or forgetting about his situation there.

    Edit: Nevermind he played there.

    I'd be shocked. He'll listen because he's an alum but leaving Pitt for TCU would be quite a risk

    Ya I assume he will listen especially now that they are in the Big 12 but still it would be pretty shocking. Has TCU ever been good at basketball?

    Their only elite 8 was like our final 4, in that they only had to beat one team in the tournament to get there. Their sweet 16 appearances were by default, and they lost the first game.

    Re: Jamie Dixon to TCU?

    Not only is it an unrealistic hire, it's not even the best hire available. I would say Eustachy, Floyd, or Doc Sadler would all be better hires.

    Re: Jamie Dixon to TCU?

    Dixon is one of the top coaches in the country, but he'll only feign interest in this to get Pitt to fork over some more scratch.

    Re:Jamie Dixon to TCU?

    This scenario is not possible. I would have better luck winning the lottery than trying to explain that.

    Don't think you're going to get much.

    EDIT: I still can't get used to that avatar, Man. If you can find it in your heart to bring the old one back, I'd be much obliged.

    Re: Jamie Dixon to TCU?

    Why does everyone think Eustachy would be a good hire for any job that comes open?
