UPDATE: Feb. 8, 10:56 a.m: Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that Maryland assistant Dave Borbely will interview on Thursday for the open Pitt offensive line coach position.
As you know by now, Pitt is in the process of trying to find a new offensive line coach after the departure of John Peterson.
The question is who are some names that Pat Narduzzi will be looking at?
Yesterday, PSN’s Alan Saunders introduced you to some names that could be considered.
Here’s another one to add to the list: Dave Borbely.
Borbely is currently at the University of Maryland in a role as the special assistant to the head coach. He joined D.J. Durkin’s staff last year as offensive line coach but was reassigned after the season.
Borbely is a veteran assistant coach, having been in the business for 35 years. Prior to Maryland, he had stints as the offensive line coach at Stanford, Notre Dame, Colorado, Louisville and Virginia.
Last season at Maryland, their running game rushed for over 2,500 for just the seventh time in team history and the first time since 2003. The Terps also scored 26 rushing touchdowns—most for that school since 2007.
As far as his recruiting background, Borbely has a deep background recruiting the Northeast and the West Coast.
