Christian gone?

If you're among the two dozen or so people that still consider themselves die-hard TCU basketball fans, then you've probably already received a text about this. Multiple outlets are reporting that Jim Christian has accepted the head coaching job at Ohio.

This could be an elaborate April Fool's Joke, but if it's true we want to wish Coach Christian nothing but the best. It would be a good fit for both parties- Christian was highly successful when he was the head coach at Kent State in the MAC, and Ohio returns just about everybody from the team that made a run to the Sweet 16 this year. I have no doubt that he would succeed with the Bobcats, but I can't help but feeling this would be a PR disaster for TCU- having our coach leave, right as we're about to join the Big 12, for a program in a conference at least a few steps below our new league.

But not so fast, says Mac Engel of the Star-Telegram. He talked to Christian this evening and despite admitting that he'd talked to Ohio, Coach says he hasn't been offered anything.

Obviously, we'll be keeping an eye on this situation tonight, tomorrow, and as far into the week as it drags.
