TCU's Jim Christian Is Expected To Be Introduced As Ohio's Next Coach On Tuesday

After some technical speak by the expected to be former TCU Horned Frogs head coach, Jim Christian looks to be on his way back to coach in the MAC as the new head coach for the Ohio Bobcats. Christian has not announced this and neither has either school, but the report of the introduction is coming from CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman.

Christian would be taking over for John Groce who led Ohio the Sweet 16 this past year, but Groce left to become the head coaching job at Illinois. The move by Christian has him heading back to the MAC where he had success as the head coach at Kent State.

His time at TCU was not great as Christian had only one winning season which was this year where TCU went 18-15 and made it to the quarterfinals of the CBI, and overall his record was 56-73.

Now TCU will be looking for a new head coach heading into their inaugural season in the Big 12.
