Hard to know if this is true, but with the continuing speculation that Ben Howland wants to (or will be forced to) leave UCLA, the Dixon to USC rumor mill is heating up.
My good sources tell me Pitt's Jamie Dixon just got an official offer from USC: $2.5 million per year for 10 years— Dinos Trigonis (@trigonis30) March 17, 2013
Speculation has always been that if Howland was at UCLA, Dixon would not want to go up against him. But with the Howland rumors heating up as well this could play into things.
I really have no idea what to think. Just because USC allegedly offered Dixon big bucks doesn't mean he would actually take the job. Dixon will do his due diligence.
We will find out soon enough if this is true...
