Jim Christian Officially Won't Be Back As TCU Coach

Although it seems just a matter of time until we receive official word about Jim Christian being introduced as the new coach at Ohio, we can officially cross off a return to TCU.

Chris Del Conte, the athletics director at TCU, released this statement early Tuesday evening:

"Jim Christian will not be returning as TCU's head men's basketball coach. We appreciate Jim's contributions to TCU and wish him the best. A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately. With our entrance into the Big 12, the momentum on the TCU campus and the great city of Fort Worth, we are very excited about the future of our men's basketball program."

There has been no word regarding who TCU will seek to replace Christian.
