UCLA may be changing directions in their coaching search due to Jamie Dixon’s significant buyout.
Dixon was believed to be the coach UCLA was targeting to fill their vacancy. However, his $8 million buyout was always a hurdle, and it may be too much for the Bruins’ taste.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Drew Davison reported on Friday that TCU was not budging on a buyout price reduction UCLA was seeking, which was a stumbling block. Later in the day, the Los Angeles Times’ Ben Bolch reported that barring a change, Dixon is out as a candidate due to the buyout.
