Pitt Head Football Coach Pat Narduzzi Signs 7-Year Contract Extension

07 Décembre 2017

Pat Narduzzi signed a seven-year contract extension, Athletic Director Heather Lyke announced Wednesday, keeping Pitt's football head coach around until at least 2024.

"We're thrilled Pat Narduzzi is our head football coach". "We are deeply committed to helping him, his staff and his student-athletes achieve at the highest levels in the ACC and nationally".

EU Slams Trump over Jerusalem Move, Warns 'Darker Times' now Lie Ahead
While the Israeli government considers Jerusalem the country's capital, the US and the global community at large recognize Tel Aviv as Israel's capital city.

Pitt is coming off a relatively disappointing season in which the Panthers finished with a 5-7 record and were ineligible for a bowl game.

"It is a tremendous honor to be the head football coach at Pitt", he said in the announcement. "My family and I are extremely appreciative of the opportunity to be part of this great university and city". The Panthers were the only team to beat eventual national champion Clemson in 2016 and stunned second-ranked Miami last month. He has more wins in his first three seasons than any Pitt coach since Jackie Sherrill, who won 28 from 1977-79. "He and his staff are fully dedicated to building a national-caliber program the right way, on and off the field". 247Sports notes Pitt now ranks last in the 14-team ACC for its 2018 recruiting class. Narduzzi is 1-1 against Penn State, and the Nittany Lions were 33-14 winners this season. "We are really enthusiastic about the team we have coming back for 2018". "It all came together in the Miami win on both sides of the ball and we're looking forward to continuing that momentum with a great offseason".
