Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi has been the subject of speculation regarding the newly vacant head coach position at Michigan State since Tuesday. However, he denied interest in the open job during a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, and a few hours later, he left absolutely no doubt about his commitment to Pitt, as he posted a video on Twitter with a clear message for rumor mongers.

With his face superimposed over Leonardo DiCaprio’s in a clip from the 2013 movie “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Narduzzi allowed DiCaprio to say what he stopped short of saying in his comments on Wednesday afternoon.

“I’m not leaving,” DiCaprio said. "I'm not leaving. I'm not leaving! The show goes on!"

Narduzzi was resolute in his denial of interest in the job in his public comments earlier in the day, but he did not explicitly say he was not leaving. That might have left the door open for further speculation, but it appears the coach has no interest in courting ambiguity with an impressive recruiting class coming in and a promising year ahead of him in Pittsburgh.
