Pitt coach Jamie Dixon joins NCAA Tournament coverage as guest analyst

CBS Sports and Turner Sports have added Pittsburgh men's basketball coach Jamie Dixon as a guest studio analyst for the 2015 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship airing across TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV.

Dixon will join host Matt Winer and analysts Mateen Cleaves and Seth Davis for NCAA Tournament third round coverage on Saturday, March 21, from Turner Studios in Atlanta.

A former College Basketball National Coach of the Year, Dixon has led Pitt to 10 tournament appearances, including the Elite Eight and three trips to the Sweet Sixteen. He also guided the school to its first No. 1 national ranking, three Big East Championships, its only two 30-win seasons and two No. 1 tournament seeds (2009 and 2011).

Dixon owns a 307-111 overall record in 12 seasons as Pitt’s head coach, and set the all-time NCAA Division I record for most wins after eight years as a head coach (216), seven seasons (188) and six years (163). He also concluded the 2012-13 season as the winningest coach in Big East history with a .658 winning percentage (.658, 127-66).

Third round game coverage will be held Saturday and Sunday (Noon-Midnight; both days) with all games available live in their entirety across four national television networks -- TBS, CBS, TNT and truTV -- and via NCAA March Madness Live.

The Final Four on Saturday, April 4, will be televised on TBS along with team-specific telecasts airing on TNT and truTV.  The National Championship Game on Monday, April 6, will air on CBS.
