Report: Jamie Dixon in talks with UCLA days after TCU officials said he’d return

TCU chancellor Victor Boschini and athletic director Jeremiah Donati each made public statements about men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon staying at the school on April 5, instead of bolting for UCLA.

Boschini told TCU 360 Dixon went to his house on April 4 and said he’d be staying, something that “relieved and excited” the chancellor. Donati posted on social media April 5 about keeping Dixon, saying he was excited about the future of the men’s basketball program under Dixon.

Dixon, though, didn’t say anything publicly until April 9, shortly after Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin was named the UCLA coach.
