TCU Basketball Coach Trent Johnson Comments On The Move To The Big 12

The TCU Horned Frogs are gearing up for a big 2012-13 season for their basketball program. The school will be a member of the Big 12 for the first time and have a new head coach to go along with their new conference. It will be a landmark season in many respects and the Frogs will be hoping to make a big splash behind new head coach Trent Johnson

Andy Katz at ESPN collected some thoughts from head coaches around the country that are overseeing teams moving to new conferences this fall. Johnson had some thoughts on the big conference move.

"I've always had the energy, but this conference move to the Big 12, the private factor and the education here and the proximity to players," Johnson said. "We're being perceived with some curiosity and a wait-and-see attitude, as it should be. It's going to be tough and a challenge."

"All of the competition in the league comes here to the Dallas-Fort Worth area," Johnson said. "The timing is right."

TCU fans should be excited about the move ... and they have every right to be.
