TCU targets LSU's Trent Johnson
TCU swung and missed with alum Jamie Dixon. Now athletic director Chris Del Conte has decided to make a run at LSU coach Trent Johnson, who went to three NCAA tournaments at Stanford and a Sweet 16 at Nevada.
LSU's Trent Johnson has emerged as a leading candidate at TCU.
Sources told CBSSports.com that TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte has, after failing to get Pittsburgh's Jamie Dixon to return to his alma mater, has targeted Johnson -- who has spent the past four years in Baton Rouge.
Johnson, 55, is 58-59 at LSU -- with an NCAA tournament appearance in his first season at the school.
However, he went to three NCAA tournaments in his four years at Stanford -- including a Sweet 16 in 2008. He also went to a Sweet 16 at Nevada in 2007 and was 79-74 in five seasons with the Wolf Pack.
Johnson would take over a program that's headed to the Big 12 and would also replace Jim Christian, who left to go to Ohio last week. Christian was 56-73 in his tenure.
