One thing that can lead to a lot of success on the field is a strong chemistry between the coaching staff and players. Pittsburgh Panthers head coach Pat Narduzzi is a firm believer in that and is going the extra mile to ensure he can create a special bond.
In order to do that, Narduzzi and his coaching staff have moved into the dorms to be closer to their team during camp.
The goal for Narduzzi is to see what his players like and what makes them comfortable.
“I’m staying in the dorm with them to get around them more, to see how they live, see what type of music they’re listening to in the evenings, what are they eating, those types of things,” Narduzzi said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“Our kids, if they feel great with one another, they love each and have that relationship, and the coaches love the players, the players love the coaches, we’re going to win some football games.”
All of the players are living in Sutherland Hall which is a change under Narduzzi.
Previously, players were able to live in their own places before making the trip to camp. With Narduzzi’s new approach, it will be interesting to see how everything plays out. With an added chemistry, the Panthers could take the next step in 2015.
