TCU is interested in Jamie Dixon to fill its men’s basketball coaching vacancy, CBS Sports reported.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Dixon is signed through 2023 and has a buyout that is believed to be in the $10 million range.
But CBS Sports reported that TCU is willing to “make the money right.”
Dixon, 50, has spent the past 13 seasons at Pittsburgh, where he has a record of 328-123.
He has taken 11 teams to the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers lost to Wisconsin 47-43 in the first round on Friday night.
Dixon played at TCU from 1984-87.
