Pitt Basketball: Kevin Stallings Fired After 0-19 ACC Record

-

The Pitt basketball program has made a coaching change.

After an 0-19 run against ACC opponents during the 2017-18 college basketball season, the Panthers have decided to part ways with head coach Kevin Stallings.

ESPN reported the news of Stallings’ pending departure after just two seasons.

The Stallings experiment has been a disaster for Pitt ever since he was hired in 2016.

After Jamie Dixon was able to lead the Panthers to 11 NCAA Tournament appearances in 13 years, Pitt lowered his buyout in an effort to push him out the door to accept the TCU Horned Frogs job.

The move worked out for TCU, which is now poised to make the NCAA Tournament after a 21-10 campaign, while Pitt ranks a lowly 227th in the latest KenPom rankings.

An official announcement is expected from Pitt soon once Stallings’ buyout details are agreed on.

Pitt finished the season with an 8-24 record.
