PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi's biggest coup during the offseason might not be the any of the players who signed letters of intent to join the reigning ACC Coastal Division champions, but a 61-year-old passing game guru with a reputation as a quarterback whisperer.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh has fired offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and wide receivers coach Kevin Sherman in an effort to overhaul its beleaguered offense.
Coach Pat Narduzzi made the announcement on Friday.
The Panthers went 7-7 this season and won the ACC Coastal Division for the first time but had trouble generating offensive against quality opponents, particularly through the air. Pitt finished 97th in the country in total offense, 93rd in scoring offense and 120th in passing offense.
EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Even without Bryce Love, Stanford plans to stick with the running game in the Sun Bowl against Pittsburgh.
Because the Panthers (7-6) are powered by the first pair of 1,000-yard rushers in school history, coach Pat Narduzzi figures Monday's meeting against the Cardinal (8-4) will be something of an oddity in today's college game.
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Neither Clemson coach Dabo Swinney nor Pitt's Pat Narduzzi sees the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game as a looming blowout, no matter how many others do.
The second-ranked Tigers (CFP No. 2) come in on a major roll, the ACC Atlantic champions capping their second 12-0 season since 2015 with a satisfying, 56-35 victory over state rival South Carolina on Saturday night.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — In the final Miami home game of the season, Hurricane fans will get to watch the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division champions.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi insists he wasn't making some sort of bold prediction. That he wasn't guaranteeing anything when he told fans at a kickoff luncheon on the eve of the regular season to clear their schedule for a trip to Charlotte for the Atlantic Coast Conference title game on the first Saturday in December because "that's where we're going."
And even as Narduzzi's comments raised eyebrows outside of the locker room, they passed without a ripple on the inside.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Coach Pat Narduzzi wasn't worried about a jinx. The Pitt coach had his equipment staff to bring the commemorative ACC caps and T-shirts all the way from Pittsburgh.
"I said, 'Get them. It's going to happen,'" Narduzzi said.
It did happen — thanks to Kenny Pickett's career day.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Pittsburgh spoiled a conference rival's special season a year ago. The Panthers don't want Wake Forest to do the same thing to them.
Pitt will clinch its first appearance in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game with a win over the Demon Deacons on Saturday.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi didn't throw the ACC Coastal Division standings up on the wall during his team's annual Sunday night meeting.
There was no need. Narduzzi is well aware his players know where the Panthers (5-4, 4-1 ACC) sit heading into Saturday's visit from Virginia Tech (4-4, 3-2): in first place and in control of their own destiny.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh head coach Pat Narduzzi has been around long enough to know an NFL-caliber player when he sees one. And he sees one in Duke's senior quarterback Daniel Jones.
An up close look awaits Saturday when Jones and the Blue Devils (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) visit the Panthers (3-4, 2-1).
"He's 6-5, he has (Duke coach) David (Cutcliffe) as his quarterbacks coach," Narduzzi said. "Got a gun arm. He can also move in the pocket. He's elusive."
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi doesn't spend a lot of time focusing on the big picture. He prefers to stay attuned to the little one. It's why he tries to divide each season into 12 separate but equal tests, one no more important than another.
Yet Narduzzi also understands he's not a perpetually plugged in 20-year-old player. Which is why he hasn't felt the need to remind the Panthers (3-4, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) where they're at heading into the stretch run.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Wide receiver Miles Boykin is usually the tallest guy in a classroom at Notre Dame. The Irish offensive huddle is another matter.
"Once we had Chase (Claypool), Cole (Kmet), Alizé (Mack) and me, and I'm the smallest receiver out there on the field," said the 6-foot-4, 228-pound senior wideout, one of the shortest of six Notre Dame receivers and tight ends.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh senior linebacker Quintin Wirginis will miss the rest of the season after injuring his knee during practice.
Coach Pat Narduzzi said Wirginis was hurt in a non-contact drill Tuesday.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The ultimate path of their team's uneven season potentially hanging in the balance, Pittsburgh senior running backs Qadree Ollison and Darrin Hall made a request to head coach Pat Narduzzi as the clock wound down against Syracuse on Saturday.
"We asked for the game to be on our backs," Ollison said. "Just put it on us. Put it on the backs. Put it on the offensive line. Put it on the seniors really. I think that's what we did."
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The silence coming from the back of the bus offered Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi all the proof he needed that his maddeningly inconsistent team remains fully engaged.
For now, that's all Narduzzi can ask for. Well, that and the hope the small mistakes that piled up into a messy loss at North Carolina last Saturday will soon be erased. Or at least minimized.
