Former Pitt defensive graduate assistant Bryan Bing is joining multiple former Pitt coaches at Wofford University, sources said Thursday. FootballScoop.com first reported the news that Bing will be the Terriers’ new defensive line coach.
At Wofford, Bing will become the third coach for the Terries with Pitt ties, joining head coach Josh Conklin and defensive coordinator Rob Greene. Conklin was Pitt’s first defensive coordinator under head coach Pat Narduzzi from 2015-18. Greene was a defensive graduate assistant at Pitt in 2016.
Bing was hired at Pitt in 2019 and served under Narduzzi, new defensive coordinator Randy Bates and defensive line coach Charlie Partridge from 2019-20, working with Pitt’s defensive linemen. That group included expected 2021 NFL Draft picks Patrick Jones II, Jaylen Twyman and Rashad Weaver.
He was previously the defensive tackles coach at Butler University in 2018, graduate assistant at Kent State in 2017 and running backs coach at Division III Heidelberger (Ohio) in 2016. Bing played linebacker Division III Methodist University, where he was a three-time all-conference selection. He is a Bradenton, Florida native.
The Wofford position opened when former Wofford defensive line coach Allen Smith was hired by the Houston Texans to be their assistant defensive line coach for the new staff being put together by David Culley. Smith was the defensive line coach at Wofford from 2018-20.
Bing is the second Pitt graduate assistant to take a full-time position this offseason. Offensive graduate assistant Joe Kreinsen, who worked with Pitt’s offensive line, is the new offensive line coach at Division II Lake Erie.
