PITT fans what do you think of Dixons 10 year extension?


I like the guy but our tourney performance has been far from anything special.

Thoughts ?

Not sure that many coaches are better than Dixon. Sure there are the marquee coaches who make it every year to the final 4. We don't have the best tourney record as you mentioned, but not sure anyone available would be better than him! We could have a way worse coach than Dixon IMO.

ACC will be a tough transition but not sure if people realize how well he has done as our coach:

"Dixon is 262-86 in 10 years at Pitt and has the highest winning percentage of any coach in Big East history."

Ironic that Dixon signs a longterm deal and Howland is most likely out at UCLA.

I agree with you.

It is a good move for Pitt. The problem with the tournement record comes down to the talent on the team moreso than Dixon doing a bad job of coaching (X's and O's) and preparing the players.

For whatever reasons Pitt's shortcomings seem to come out more in the tournements. At times he has the team win despite themselves during the year. Overall there are very few letdowns. There may be a bad night here or there, but they are pretty well prepared to play usually.

I only think that Dixon underacheived the one year when they lost to Villinova in the elite 8 after losing in the Big East Tourney as well. That team was very talented and capable of being a legit Final 4 threat, but they seemed to wear down come Tournement time and did not dominate in any of their games despite the talent.

This year Pitt's shortcomings cost them in the Big East Tournement against Syracuse and Wichita State is just playing out of their minds right now! Very Happy

They went off against Gonzaga! I think they shot like 99% from 3 or something. Laughing
