Pitt Football: Ex-FAU Coach Charlie Partridge Added To Staff

The Pitt football program has made an addition to its coaching staff.

On Tuesday, the school announced former Florida Atlantic head coach Charlie Partridge is returning to Pitt to serve as defensive line coach. Partridge previously worked at Pitt from 2003-2007.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to return to Pitt and work with Coach Narduzzi and his staff,” Partridge said. “I’m fully aware that the University of Pittsburgh is a special institution in an amazing city with a top-notch football program that competes at the highest level in the ACC.”

Pat Narduzzi also commented on the hiring in a statement.

“I’ve been a big fan of Charlie’s work for a very long time,” Narduzzi said. “I remember watching his defensive lines at Wisconsin and really admiring how they played. Charlie’s players reflected his energy and passion. He’s an incredibly bright coach who is an excellent teacher and knows how to develop players.”

Along with his previous stops at FAU and Pitt, Partridge spent time at Wisconsin and Arkansas.

Partridge was fired by the Owls after posting a 9-27 record in three seasons. He was replaced by Lane Kiffin.
