On the heels of being one and done in the NCAA tournament, Pitt basketball head coach Jamie Dixon has signed a 10 year contract extension that runs through the 2022-2023 season.
Here’s what Athletic director Steve Pederson said of Dixon’s extension:
“Very few programs can match the sustained success that Pitt basketball has achieved during the past decade under Jamie Dixon,” Pederson said. “As we move forward as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, our future has never been brighter or provided more opportunity. In order to maintain and build upon our past success, it was important to our university and athletic department that we make a strong long-term commitment to Jamie. He has been far more than a basketball coach at Pitt and we are fortunate to have such a high-caliber person representing our university. I look forward to continuing to work with Jamie as he leads our program into an exciting new era in the ACC.”
