Pat Narduzzi says coaching carousel not good for college football
Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi isn’t a fan of coaching carousels for college football.
There have been a lot of moves made surrounding the sport, including Brian Kelly to LSU, Lincoln Riley to USC, and Brent Pry to Virginia Tech.
When Narduzzi spoke to the media on Thursday, he spoke about loyalty and how it’s never about the money for why he coaches.
“When I walk in my office, there’s a piece of paper laying right there with something my dad had folded up in his pocket. It’s called loyalty. I’m all about loyalty and it isn’t about the money. You see some of these I can’t turn it down and I won’t get into coaches and who made that decision to go there and that. You have all this money to throw around, but what are we doing for the kids? That’s where I’m at on it.”

Judging by this comment, it seems highly unlikely Narduzzi would leave Pitt anytime soon. It’s not about the money for him and it looks like it never has been.
Narduzzi has been with the Panthers since 2015 and has compiled a 52-36 record.
He’s looking to win his 1st ever ACC Championship on Saturday against Wake Forest. Kickoff will be at 8 p.m. ET.
