Although the university hasn’t officially announced the opening, the Pitt football program continues to search for a new defensive line coach and I believe we know a candidate that’s being considered.
Pittsburgh Sports Now believes that former Pitt assistant Charlie Partridge is serious candidate for the position.
Partridge was an assistant under Walt Harris and is considered one of the top recruiters of the state of Florida. While with Pitt, Partridge was the primary recruiter of Jabaal Sheard and Greg Romeus. He also helped close the deal on both H.B. Blades and Clint Sessions.
If Partridge is Pat Narduzzi’s choice it would strengthen Pitt’s recruiting in the state of Florida. The team of Josh Conklin, Tim Salem and Rob Harley with Partridge would be strong.
I haven’t officially confirmed this but I’m going with a gut feeling on this one. Let’s see how this plays out. Either way, I’d expect some sort of news in the next few days.
