Dixon Ties NCAA Division I Record for Fastest to 200 Career Wins




Dec. 22, 2010

PITTSBURGH--University of Pittsburgh head basketball coach Jamie Dixon won his 200th career game Wednesday evening when the Panthers defeated American 61-46 at the Petersen Events Center.

 

With the win, Dixon tied the NCAA Division I all-time record for quickest to 200 wins in only eight seasons, matching the record held by Gonzaga's Mark Few and Kansas' Roy Williams. He also ranks among the all-time top-15 in quickest to 200 victories in regards to total games (see chart below).

 

Dixon will also become the fastest coach in school history to reach the 200-win plateau and only the second coach to reach that mark in school history. The only other coach in school history to win over 200 games is H.C. "Doc" Carlson, who recorded a 367-247 record over 31 years from 1922-53.

 

Dixon became the first head coach in school history to guide Pitt to seven consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. With his 188 wins, Dixon tied the NCAA Division I all-time record for most victories after seven seasons as a head coach. He tied Gonzaga's Few, who held the record with 188 wins from 2000-06. In 2008-09, Dixon set the NCAA Division I record for most wins after the first six seasons as a head coach.
