Pitt signs Dixon to extension through 2022-23

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - So much for speculation that Jamie Dixon is leaving Pittsburgh.

Saying he wants to "finish his career" with the Panthers, Dixon agreed to a contract extension on Saturday that will keep him signed through 2023.

There had been talk that USC was targeting Dixon, a Southern California native, for its open job.

The Panthers went 24-9 this season and finished fourth in their final year in the Big East but were blown out by Wichita State in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday.

Dixon is 11-9 in the tournament, though Pitt has not advanced past the opening weekend since 2009, when it lost to Villanova in the regional finals.

Dixon is 262-86 in a decade with the Panthers, who are moving on to the ACC this summer.
