    Even if he got some players, the result was him getting fired after 2 years and zero wins in the SEC. It would be hard to sell to the fans, recruits, and boosters getting the TCU job right now IMO.
    I think Bryce should take a non P6 job and rehab his career before taking a high major job, especially one like TCU which doesn't have a great history of basketball success to sell. With TxT rise it, TCU is the hardest job to sell in the Big 12. Dixon brought credibility with him to get recruits, Bryce doesn't have that right now.

    And those losses hurt the tourney selection metrics less when the are against good teams...

    Steve Alford, Mike Anderson, Bryce Drew, Eric Musselman, Avery Johnson, tons of others available that would be qualified to take the Frogs. But whoever it is, the conference reputation will take a small hit for losing Jamie Dixon.

    No it won't. No one gives a **** nationally about TCU basketball.

    Jamie Dixon gave great credibility to TCU and by extension the conference. To deny that is hogwash. There aren't a lot of coaches with his credentials.

    If Steve Alford went to TCU there would be a percentage of fans that probably would not even notice there was a change.

    I'm really curious to see if Gregg Marshall pulls the plug on Wichita.

    Sometime's you don't know what you had until it's gone. It is weird though given how things ended so poorly under Howland. He did have some really good teams there. Really surprising he didn't get a title there with some of the rosters he had, just ran into those great Florida teams.

    Looks like a resume of a coach who hasn't done anything relevant in the sport for 8+ years.

    Wow that’s gotta help recruiting/s. How would you feel being recruited to TCU by a guy that accepted another job only to not get it because of his buyout? That’s gotta Instill confidence he is going to there the whole time for college career...

    And I'm sure that recruiting for TCU is going well right now.

    Recruit: "Hey, aren't you the coach that is going to UCLA?"
    Dixon: "I'm the TCU head coach. Hey, do you want some tickets to Disneyworld?"

    How stupid would you have to be to get a deal in place without accounting for the current buyout on his contract? And how stupid would you have to be as TCU to lower it a dime? I suppose the current untenable situation probably does put some pressure on TCU to just fold a bit, but what a freaking mess.

    Disneyworld is in Orlando. Is Dixon trying to get to UCF also? :)

    I saw some rumors that Arkansas is looking at him. Could be time, now that WSU is no longer the lone big fish in the MVC pond.

    Fight to hold on to the guy who doesn't want to be there. Brilliant!
