Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi and former quarterback John Congemi will represent the Panthers at the 13th annual Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament beginning on Sunday.
Congemi, who played at Pitt from 1982 to 1986 and played in the 1984 Fiesta Bowl, threw for 6,467 yards and 42 touchdowns in his Pitt career. He is sixth all-time at Pitt in passing yards and seventh in passing touchdowns.
After his Pitt career, Congemi played in the Canadian Football League from 1987 to 1994, spending five years with the Toronto Argonauts. Since his retirement, he’s worked as a broadcast analyst for Fox Sports Florida, the Big East Network, and ESPNU.
Congemi and Narduzzi also participated in the 2018 event. This year, they will be paired against UConn coach Randy Edsall and former quarterback Dan Orlovsky.
The challenge is contested for $650,000 worth of scholarship and charity funds. Pitt’s winnings will be split between an endowed scholarship and the school and the Stanley M. Marks, MD, Endowed Research Fund.
The other schools participating are Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, North Carolina, NC State, Notre Dame and Ohio State.
