Pat Narduzzi and his staff led Pitt to a 8 win season in his first year as head coach and instilled an enthusiasm to the program that’s been absent for years.
This morning, the University of Pittsburgh rewarded him for that by announcing that Narduzzi has been given a 2-year extension.
This extension means that Narduzzi will be under contract thru the 2021 season. No details of the deal were announced. Narduzzi’s original contract paid him $2 million per season.
My guess is that Narduzzi will now make north of $3 million per season. It’s likely that Narduzzu asked for raises for his assistants and possibly a bigger recruiting budget.
In a statement released by the school, Narduzzi said, “Pittsburgh is an incredible place with incredible people. My family and I plan on making Pittsburgh our home for a very long time and we’re glad the leadership at Pitt feels the same way. It’s an honor to serve as Pitt’s head coach and I’m continually energized by what we can, and what we will accomplish here.”
