Pat Narduzzi is still trying to stir the pot after comment about Penn State's Lamont Wade
If Pat Narduzzi ever decides to leave coaching, he shouldn’t have any trouble landing a job as a fight promoter.
The Pitt head coach has been playing up the rivalry between the Panthers and Penn State for the last two weeks, taking several not-so-subtle jabs at the Nittany Lions over the course of the last two weeks. But his latest comments on Penn State safety Lamont Wade might light a fire under James Franklin and company.
In an interview this week, Narduzzi was asked to give his thoughts on Wade, a key member of Penn State’s defense. But the Pitt head coach didn’t exactly pay the sophomore any compliments with his assessment.
“You don’t see him a whole lot,” Narduzzi said, according to 247Sports. “You don’t see him a lot out there.”
Wade is listed as a member of Penn State’s second-team defense right now and is expected to rotate in more frequently as the season progresses. In 13 games since joining the Nittany Lions, Wade has totaled 32 tackles.
Narduzzi may still be holding a grudge against the defensive back, too. Before the 4-star athlete committed to Penn State, he was giving strong consideration to Pitt.
The back-and-forth between Penn State and Pitt continues. The two teams will square off in primetime action on Saturday night.
