Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi will continue to lead the Panthers through the end of the decade. The two sides agreed to a lengthy contract extension, the school announced on Monday morning.

Narduzzi has agreed to a contract extension that will keep him at Pitt through the 2030 season. Last season, the Panthers claimed an ACC title and made an appearance in the Peach Bowl, finishing with an 11-3 record.

“Our ACC championship season was the result of a strong culture and foundation that Pat Narduzzi has tirelessly built for Pitt football,” Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke said. “That foundation has our program positioned for sustained success well into the future. Continuity of leadership, especially outstanding leadership like Coach Narduzzi and his staff have provided, has been integral to our program’s rise. We know that we are poised for even more history-making moments in the years to come with Coach Narduzzi on our sideline.”

In 7 seasons as the head coach at Pitt, Narduzzi has posted a 53-37 record with a 36-22 mark in ACC play. His teams have appeared in 5 bowl games and have reached an 8-win total 4 times.

Prior to taking over at Pitt, Narduzzi was the defensive coordinator at Michigan State from 2007-14.

“I love Pitt football and the University of Pittsburgh,” Narduzzi said. “Pitt is truly home for my family and me. We are proud to represent this outstanding university and live in this tremendous city.

“I am so appreciative of our players, coaches and staff. Nothing great can be accomplished without their efforts and commitment. I’ve always talked about the importance of pushing together in the same direction. We have that at Pitt across the board.”
