TCU brass is comfortable with the situation going forward.
Boschini said he wouldn’t divulge the exact dialogue of their conversation.
“I don’t want to speak for him, but he’s staying which is good,” he said.
Boschini said he took Dixon’s reaffirmation as the head coach of TCU men’s basketball as a commitment to stay for the rest of his coaching career.
“My interpretation of our conversation is that he [Dixon] plans to stay with us through the entirety of his career and that we don’t have to worry about something like this again.”
As they should be.
TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati refuted the notion that Dixon didn’t land the UCLA job over the buyout language of his contract.
“There was never a negotiation regarding the buyout of Jamie’s contract,” Donati said. “From Day 1, he has always expressed his love and passion for TCU to me. I am very excited about the future of our men’s basketball program.”
The Frogs got some impressive performance from players both young and old last season.
Reagor was also named the offensive MVP following a season in which he topped the 1,000-yard receiving mark. Reagor finished the year with a team-leading 72 receptions for 1,061 yards. More than 60 percent of his receptions (44 of 72) went for a first down or a touchdown.
Senior defensive end L.J. Collier earned defensive MVP honors, and true freshman Trevon Moehrig was the special teams MVP.
Collier was second on the team with six sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss. He also tied for third on the team with four pass breakups, the most by a D-lineman.
2019 is going to come down to QB play. And we don’t know what that will mean yet.
“Bottom line is they’ve got to make the plays they’re supposed to make. Minus 12 turnover ratio we’re 3-5. Plus 8, we win four out of our last five. It’s about running the football, play action and throwing the football but not turning it over,” Patterson said. “For me, the guy that can organize it and doesn’t turn it over is going to be the leader of the whole situation. They all have strengths; they all have made some good throws. The key for us is how we keep them going forward with it.”
