"Our next comment will be when the new coach is named," said a spokesperson.
At a press conference earlier in the day, Athletic Director Jean Lenti-Ponsetto said all the coaches they’re looking at are currently in the NCAA Tournament.
Getting Dixon to Chicago could be price prohibitive for DePaul.
While Lenti-Ponsetto said they’re willing to make their next coach the second or third highest-paid in the Big East Conference, Dixon is under contract with Pitt through 2013. So, we’re talking buyout -- and an annual salary which could exceed two-million.
