Pitt football coach Pat Narduzzi has received a heft contract extension.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Panthers announced that the head coach has received a contract extension through the 2024 season.
The former Pitt leading man announced his decision through an official statement on Wednesday.
“I am tremendously blessed to work with such great leadership at the University of Pittsburgh in Athletic Director Heather Lyke and Chancellor Patrick Gallagher,” Narduzzi said in a release. “When I initially accepted the head coaching position at Pitt three years ago this month, I said we could achieve great things if we were all moving in the same direction. Thanks to Chancellor Gallagher and Heather, we are all definitely moving in the same direction with a shared vision for excellence on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
“It is a tremendous honor to be the head football coach at Pitt. My family and I are extremely appreciative of the opportunity to be part of this great university and city.”
Narduzzi has led the Panthers to an overall record of 21-17 during his tenure.
