Pitt’s Pat Narduzzi receives seven-year contract
Pittsburgh — Pittsburgh has signed coach Pat Narduzzi to a new contract that will keep him with the Panthers through the 2024 season.
The school announced the deal Wednesday. Financial details were not disclosed.
Narduzzi, the former Michigan State defensive coordinator, is 21-17 in three seasons with the Panthers, including a 5-7 mark in 2017. Pitt pulled off major upsets in each of the last two years. The Panthers were the only team to beat eventual national champion Clemson in 2016 and stunned second-ranked Miami last month. Pitt has also sent 14 players to the NFL during Narduzzi’s tenure, including five in 2017.
Athletic director Heather Lyke, who recently arrived at Pitt after years at Eastern Michigan, called Narduzzi a “tireless worker” and said the athletic department is “deeply committed” to helping Narduzzi and his staff help the Panthers compete at the “highest level” in the ACC.
