Wanny out as Head Coach

I know its been a while since ive last posted. But got some big news for a comeback post. Baldwin graduate, Pittsburgh born Pitt HC Dave Wannstedt has resigned. From what im hearing around the media outlets that was just a PR stunt by the athletic department. Wanny was really fired. Ive been hearing alot of names being tossed out there since the news release of the story. A few big names like former Head Coach Mike Leach from Texas Tech has been one of them that has been thrown out there. Leach would bring a dangerous offensive attack to Pitt, but he isnt known as a big recruiter and not very liked by his former players. Marvin Lewis the HC of the Cincinnati Bengals is to be known to be very interested in the job. The University is going to be making a "splash" with the new coach to create buzz around the team and to finally fill Heinz Field. Conversations will start this weekend about the vacancy. Steve Pederson said that candidates will be internal and external. Stay tuned to PittMix for updates on the coaching spot and all of the new recruiting buzz now that Wannstedt is gone.
