Coming off one of the best seasons in school history, TCU and head basketball coach Jamie Dixon have agreed to a contract extension that will keep him in Fort Worth until the 2027-28 season.
TCU won its first NCAA Tournament game since 1987 when they took down Seton Hall in the opening round, and nearly toppled one-seed Arizona in an overtime thriller. TCU ended the 2021-22 season with a 21-13 record and has now been in the field of 64 in two of the past four seasons. Prior to that, the Horned Frogs hadn’t been dancing since 1998.
“I’m thankful for the belief, trust, and support from Chancellor Victor Boschini and (athletic director) Jeremiah Donati,” Dixon said in a statement. “Our program has improved greatly under their outstanding leadership. I’m excited to build on what we accomplished this past year and eager to get back in the gym to prepare for next season.”
In six seasons with the Horned Frogs, Dixon has compiled a 117-84 record, two trips to the NCAA Tournament, and an NIT Championship in 2017.
“Coach Dixon has done an unbelievable job building our men’s basketball program in his six seasons at TCU,” said Donati in a statement. “He and his staff have developed young men in our program who represent TCU so well on and off the court. They have established a basketball culture on campus that makes everyone proud. I know I speak for our entire fan base and community when I say that we could not be more excited about the future and the trajectory we are on.”
