After taking the TCU Horned Frogs to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 20 years, Jamie Dixon is being rewarded with a contract extension.
The second-year coach in Fort Worth has agreed to an extension that will take him through the 2023-24 season.
“We are very excited to announce the contract extension with Jamie Dixon,” TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati said in a press release. “We are committed to competing at the highest level, and Coach Dixon is the right person to lead us. Coming off our NCAA Tournament appearance, we have a lot of momentum and excitement with men’s basketball not just on campus, but in Fort Worth as well. I am excited to watch us take the next step as a program.”
Dixon’s time with the Horned Frogs has been an unmitigated success. In his first season as coach of his alma mater after 13 seasons at Pittsburgh, he took TCU to an NIT championship, and followed that by leading the Frogs to an appearance in the AP Top 10 for the first time in school history. He has a 45-27 record in his two seasons at TCU.
“We are proud of what this program has accomplished in two short years and look forward to even greater success in the future,” Dixon said in the release.
The basketball coach isn’t the only high-profile head man at TCU to receive an extension in the last year. The Horned Frogs also extended the contract of football coach Gary Patterson through the 2024 season in November.
