The most important offseason of Pat Narduzzi’s tenure at Pitt has already begun, and so far, it’s been handled almost perfectly by Narduzzi and his staff.
In the wake of a 3-9 (2-6 ACC) season, which is easily the worst season that Pat Narduzzi has put together in nine years at the helm, the Panthers couldn’t miss. And it’s an offseason that’s off to a really strong start — one that will enter the spring session soon.
New offensive coordinator Kade Bell is revamping the offense, and with three new offensive staffers recently hired, the spring will be pivotal in installing an all-new offense. And Charlie Partridge has already rebuilt the entire defensive line — with more work to be done across the defensive unit.
Pitt couldn’t miss when it came to bolstering a roster that certainly wasn’t as bad as the record indicated. No one is saying the Panthers should’ve returned to Charlotte, N.C. for the ACC title, but a bowl game 100% should’ve been in the cards with the roster as it stood — and no one is happy with how it ended.
The offseason is well underway, with all kinds of movement both in and out of the program. The class of 2024 has also put pen to paper, all 20 members, so the roster is starting to shape up for the 2024 season. But there will certainly be more movement to come in the days, weeks and months ahead.
So, we’ve gotta keep track of it, of course.
