Report: Brennan Marion Targeted by Texas as Next WR Coach

Published

on

Brennan Marion’s future at Pitt may be winding down after just one season. While Marion, Pitt’s wide receivers coach, was likely considered for the interim offensive coordinator position for the Peach Bowl, tight ends coach Tim Salem was ultimately named the play-caller.

It’s clear that Marion wanted to be promoted to Pitt’s offensive coordinator, but it’s appearing more and more unlikely that his wish will come to fruition.

Rumors surrounding a potential exit to Colorado or Texas have swirled for the past couple of weeks, and more and more links are emerging. Texas is targeting Marion for its open wide receivers coach position, On3 Sports’ Matt Zenitz reported.

Marion, a 34-year-old offensive innovator, is highly-regarded around the college football landscape, and while he may not be promoted to an offensive coordinator this season, it appears to only be a matter of time.

In his lone season with Pitt, Marion has helped Jordan Addison win the Biletnikoff Award as college football’s top wide receiver and guided Pitt’s wide receivers room to a very successful season.

Pitt’s offensive personnel could undergo some changes this offseason, with a handful of coaching spots potentially coming free and the battle to replace Kenny Pickett getting underway between Kedon Slovis, Nick Patti and more.

Narduzzi just lost his best recruiter for his friend that MAC schools won’t steal or want. Marion could steal someone like Addison now, with Transfer Portal. Pickett was special and major loss too. Well back to the 7 – 5 Panthers if lucky. Narduzzi can recruit Salem’s brother or other washed up Michigan State assistants. Worried Partridge is next to go. Marion was to young for Narduzzi! He likes those experienced washed up coaches.

Please provide a list of the players that Marion has delivered to Pitt, you know, because he’s their best recruiter. I’ll wait.

I’m not aware of any. I know however we lost out on Camden Brown.

Not a great idea to get a reputation as a guy that jumps ship routinely. I see people blowing tons of smoke up this guys backside but his resume doesn’t have a lot on it to be garnering this much buzz. Anyone is better than Salem of course but people are acting like this Marion has done so much. I’m not nearly as convinced as some that this guy is so special.
