Kevin Stallings named new HC at Pitt

The Pittsburgh Panthers lost head coach Jamie Dixon to TCU just a few weeks ago in a big move for the Horned Frogs. The Panthers wasted little time in finding their new head coach as they have just hired Kevin Stallings away from Vanderbilt.

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported the move Sunday morning, showing just how influencing money can be. He left the Commodores after 17 years for a six-year contract with the Panthers.

Kevin Stallings has agreed to 6-year deal with Pittsburgh, sources told ESPN.

Stallings compiled a record of 332-220 with the Commodores, taking them to seven NCAA Tournament appearances. He also had 123-63 record at Illinois State, taking them to the two NCAA appearances in his time with the Redbirds.

He should be a big piece for the Panthers going forward.
