IRVING, Texas (AP) TCU coach Jamie Dixon is planning to go home soon to the Los Angeles area to visit his parents. He said he could have been coaching there if that's what he had really wanted to do.
Dixon said Wednesday that he made the decision to stay at his alma mater instead of returning to the West Coast to coach even after UCLA was prepared to take care of the hefty buyout in his contract.
"Ultimately I had the choice to go or leave, and I decided to stay. It was my choice," Dixon said at the Big 12 spring meetings. "They took care of the buyout. ... I had the option to go. I could do what I wanted to do."
