committee has identified 5 (working on 5th name) for Pitt A.D. job. Chancellor plans to bring them in next couple weeks and narrow it to 3— Rich Walsh KDKA (@RichieWalsh) April 14, 2015
Three of those schools have football as the primary focus with the exception being Villanova, but all are quality athletic programs. It is expected these candidates will be vetted by Pat Narduzzi, Jamie Dixon, and the search committee formed by Randy Juhl made up of coaches and athletes.
The four candidates are certainly varied in experience and accolades, but we'll offer a full breakdown of each candidate soon.
