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.

The victory put a salve on Saturday’s doubleheader loss to the Ragin Cajuns that saw the Mavericks be outscored by a total of 29-9.

It was also UTA’s first victory over a ranked opponent since 2003. It also ended a 13-game losing streak to ULL.

It was also only ULL’s second loss of the year, the first coming from then-No. 5 Oregon that ended their 16-game win streak.
