A coach that I figured to be a prime candidate to replace Tom Sims at Pitt is no longer available.
Jim Harbaugh has announced that former Pitt assistant Charlie Partridge has been hired as Michigans new special teams coordinator as well as the Wolverines new linebackers coach.
I was beginning to hear talk that Partridge was a serious candidate for the Pitt DL job but that won’t be happening.
Partridge seemed like a great candidate because of his reputation as a DL coach and his ability to recruit, especially in the state of Florida.
With all the DL coaching hirings within the past few days, I would expect Pitt to make an announcement within the next 5 days.
