Pitt Signs Dan Fisher To 7-Year Contract Extension
The Pitt athletic department rewarded volleyball coach Dan Fisher for the programs recent success with a new contract.
The university announced today that they’ve signed Fisher to a 7-year extension that will keep him with the program thru the 2026 season.
“I am grateful to Chancellor Patrick Gallagher and Heather Lyke for their enduring support and investment in the future of the volleyball program,” said Fisher. “I’m honored to lead this team, as Pittsburgh has become home to me. We have built something special over the last seven years, and we will continue our pursuit of excellence.”
Since taking over in 2013, Fisher has compiled a record of 178-49 (.784), an ACC record of 106-29 (.785) and three consecutive ACC Championship titles.
“It is with genuine enthusiasm that we reaffirm our long term commitment to Coach Dan Fisher,” said Lyke. “Our volleyball program has become a model for all of our teams and represents our department-wide goal of comprehensive excellence. Most importantly, our student-athletes are having a remarkable experience. They have developed a sincere and passionate fan base and have connected with the Pittsburgh community. Under Coach Fisher’s leadership, he and his staff have built Pitt into an elite volleyball program and we are pleased to reaffirm our commitment to Dan and investment in our volleyball program. I am confident in Coach Fisher’s vision and excited to see us build upon this foundation of success.”
Fisher ranks 5th among 335 active head coaches with a career winning percentage of .832 (253-51).
Now if they could just get over that final hurdle in the postseason. Can’t keep losing to teams that they are better than before the sweet 16. Reminding me too much of Pitt hoops.
Great work, Coach Fisher!
Hail to Pitt!
