Coach Paul Chryst via the Pitt website:

“I understand the speculation surrounding my name given today’s developments. I am committed to the Pitt football program and the University of Pittsburgh. I am focusing all my time and energy on our team’s bowl game preparation and recruiting a great group of young men to join our program and this outstanding university. We are working hard every day to re-establish this program and I am excited about the future of Pitt football.”

So that is positive. Good to see Chryst and the Pitt Athletic Department realize that they had to say something.

That said, plenty of wiggle room and I won’t be exhaling completely until Wisconsin hires someone else.

I didn’t put this together until just now:

The one and only Jeff Long is the AD that hired Bielema away from Wisconsin. Coincidence…? I really don’t know. Even so… JEFF LONG DID SOMETHING GOOD?!?! WHAT?!?!

This is getting a little spooky guys…

That would be perfect- Barry for a couple more years and then Chryst can step in after taking Pitt to the NC in 2015 or so…

Last Pitt man who made a truly great HC – Jock Sutherland.
