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.
Texas is targeting Pitt’s Brennan Marion for its wide receivers coach job, sources tell @on3sports.
Under Marion, Jordan Addison won this year’s Biletnikoff Award. Marion has also helped Pitt go from 79th in total offense last year to 5th this season. https://t.co/k5bN5NhJoE

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.
