Kevin Stallings to Retire From Basketball



Not only is Kevin Stallings done at Pitt, he’s done coaching college basketball.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that Pitt’s 67-64 Loss to Notre Dame will be Stallings’ last as a head coach.

After 25 seasons as a head coach, sources tell PSN that the 57-year old is retiring from college basketball.

With stops at Illinois State, Vanderbilt and Pitt, Stallings finished with a career record of 479-324 (.597).

Stallings wanted to make one last run with a big-time program and hoped to do that at Pitt. After just two years on the job, the Pitt administration decided to fire him after a controversial season in which the Panthers went winless in ACC play.

One thing that should be noted is despite not achieving the success they wanted on the court, Stallings’ players were highly successful off the court.

*The 2018 Pitt basketball team had the highest team GPA in program history two out of three semesters.
*Led the athletic department in student athlete community service hours.
*No drug test issues or residential life issues.

Once again, sources tell PSN that Kevin Stallings is retiring from college basketball.
