Probably the best thing for Pitt is that he has lots of Florida ties and hopefully that will help with recruiting in the area. He grew up in Florida and while his last job was as DC at Hampton University in Virginia, he also coached the defensive lines at South Florida and Florida International.
He also looks like one mean dude, and that's got to count for something.
All in all, looks like a solid hire. Proven winner with previous coaching experience and should help Pitt go after the Florida recruits.
