Pitt Head Coach Jamie Dixon fired


Pitt AD Steve Pederson announced this evening that men's basketball coach Jamie Dixon has been fired. Dixon, head coach at Pitt since 2003, won multiple national coach of the year awards and had a 227-62 overall record (.785) at Pitt, but only once guided the team past the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament (an Elite Eight appearance in 2009-2009). This season the team, at one point 11-1 and ranked in the top 15, is 11-6, off to an unprecedented 0-4 start in the conference, and has lost five straight games - most recently (and apparently the final straw) a 62-39 loss to lowly Rutgers - at home.
