Is this TCU's new hoops coach?

CBS Sports is reporting that TCU is targeting LSU's Trent Johnson to be the Horned Frogs' next head basketball coach. Johnson, 55 and a Boise State alum, has 13 years of head coaching experience at Nevada, Stanford and LSU. He has made five appearances in the NCAA Tournament and has had three seasons of 25+ wins. He currently makes $1.3 million at LSU, where he led the Tigers to an 18-14 record this year and a berth in the NIT.

I've talked to a handful of LSU fans and they all seem happy with the idea of him leaving. That doesn't give me confidence in him.

Let's see, we can't afford a coach making $1.7 million a year who has strong tries to TCU and a strong record of getting teams to the Dance, but we could afford a $1.2 million a year coach who isn't loved and has been mediocre?
Gotta be $500k laying around somewhere that CDC could put toward the problem!
