Ten years ago today marked one of the most controversial decisions in Pitt football history as then-athletic director Steve Pederson fired head football coach Dave Wannstedt.
In six seasons as Panthers head coach, Wannstedt went 42-31, which included a three year record from from 2008 until 2010 of 26-12, which is the program’s best three-year run since 1981-83.
That December afternoon 10 years ago was a bizarre scene as Wannstedt walked into the press conference flanked by his players behind him as a sign of their support and love for him.
With the inconsistency of the program, some fans today still maintain that firing him was a mistake.
Our PSN Poll question is, looking back, was the firing of Dave Wannstedt a mistake?
