FWST: TCU coaching trees of Jamie Dixon, Bill Montigel rooted together
BY MATTHEW MARTINEZÂ email@example.com
Itâ€™s no secret that Jamie Dixonâ€™s roots run deep at TCU.
Anyone whoâ€™s spent any time around the TCU golf program knows itâ€™s the same for longtime coach Bill Montigel, now in his 28th year with the Frogs.
Montigel was originally hired as an assistant basketball coach under Jim Killingsworth, the last coach to lead the Horned Frogs to a win in the NCAA Tournament. Montigel became TCUâ€™s golf coach after Killingsworth announced his retirement following the 1987 season.
Eventually, Montigel sent a son to TCU to play under former coach Trent Johnson.
