Pat Narduzzi has been questioned every second of every day since the 17-10 loss to Penn State on Saturday. His decision to kick a field goal on the goal line late in the fourth quarter while trailing by a touchdown has been the most head-scratching call so far in the college football season.
But the Pitt head coach isn’t backing down from his decision.
On Monday, Narduzzi met with the media for his weekly press conference, and he brought up the play-call on his own. He knew it would be a topic of conversation.
Below are Narduzzi’s comments on the situation, as posted by ESPN’s Andrea Adelson:
That’s probably something Pitt fans don’t want to hear, but at the very least, Narduzzi isn’t pointing any fingers. He even apologized for the third straight loss to the Nittany Lions.
But that call will certainly be scrutinized for the rest of the college football season. There’s just no real way around it.
