TCU men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon has found his next assistant.

Dixon and TCU are in the hiring process to bring Texas A&M assistant Jamie McNeilly on board, sources told the Star-Telegram on Tuesday.

McNeilly, a Toronto native, has been a longtime assistant under A&M coach Buzz Williams. McNeilly was an assistant under Williams the last two seasons with the Aggies (2019-21) and the five seasons before that at Virginia Tech (2014-19). McNeilly worked under Williams at Marquette, too, from 2008-14.

Under Williams at Marquette, McNeilly also crossed paths with TCU assistant Tony Benford. Benford was on Williams’ staff from 2008-12.

McNeilly joins a TCU program that has added a couple Texas A&M transfers this offseason. Forward Emanuel Miller and guard Cashius McNeilly — Jamie McNeilly’s nephew — have announced their intentions to join TCU in recent weeks.

TCU is coming off a 12-14 season in 2020-21, the first losing season in Dixon’s career.
