PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh's chance to repeat as ACC champions essentially evaporated during a mistake-prone October in which the Panthers regularly beat themselves.
Faced with the prospect of giving another one away on Saturday against Duke, Pitt offered head coach Pat Narduzzi a glimpse of its growth, as anxiety-inducing as it may be for him to endure.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi knows to tread carefully when invoking the name Aaron Donald.
Narduzzi's doing it anyway when it comes to his defensive lineman Calijah Kancey. His play is giving him no choice.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kedon Slovis is in no hurry to talk about 2023. Getting through 2022 has been challenging enough for the Pittsburgh quarterback.
While Slovis said he and head coach Pat Narduzzi have “glossed over” the USC transfer's future, he's not quite ready to make any pronouncement about where he might be playing next season.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Pittsburgh got off to an exceedingly quick start Saturday at Virginia, returning passes by Brennan Armstrong on the first two plays from scrimmage for touchdowns.
“That's how you start fast on defense,” Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi said.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — M.J. Devonshire and Marquis Williams returned interceptions for touchdowns on the first two plays from scrimmage and Pittsburgh reached bowl eligibility with a 37-7 victory at Virginia on Saturday.
Kenny Pickett's storybook finish at Pittsburgh last fall included a little bit of everything. A trip to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pat Narduzzi once appeared to be on shaky ground at Pittsburgh, at least externally. The Panthers slogged to a 5-7 record in his third season in 2017.
Rather than put him on the clock, athletic director Heather Lyke awarded him with a seven-year contract extension, confident in Narduzzi's vision.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tailback Israel Abanikanda rushed for four touchdowns and quarterback Kedon Slovis was solid in his return from injury as No. 24 Pittsburgh beat Rhode Island 45-24 on Saturday.
The Panthers (3-1) have been searching for a top-tier running game since Qadree Ollison and Darrin Hall both rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 2018.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pat Narduzzi has always been a fixer. A project guy. It doesn't matter if it's painting an office or slowly building a program, the Pittsburgh coach is always drawn to something that keeps his hands or his mind busy.
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Pitt junior running back Israel Abanikanda carried the ball 31 times for 131 yards and a touchdown to lead the No. 23 Panthers to a 34-13 victory over Western Michigan on Saturday.
Seeking revenge is the least of No. 23 Pittsburgh's concerns as it heads to Western Michigan on Saturday. At least for coach Pat Narduzzi.
There are far more pressing needs at the moment for the Panthers than trying to get even with the Broncos, who pulled off a 44-41 stunner in Pittsburgh last fall.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi says he doesn't know anything about the status of his quarterbacks as the 23rd-ranked Panthers prepare for a trip to Western Michigan.
USC transfer Kedon Slovis didn't play in the second half of Pitt's 34-27 overtime loss to Tennessee on Saturday.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pat Narduzzi does his best to block out the noise. Still, some of it filters through to the longtime Pittsburgh head coach.
So yes, he's aware the 17th-ranked Panthers (1-0) are underdogs on Saturday when 24th-ranked Tennessee (1-0) becomes the first Southeastern Conference school to visit Pittsburgh.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pat Narduzzi's memories of “The Backyard Brawl” are hazy at best. Growing up in nearby Youngstown, Ohio, Narduzzi remembers catching the annual meeting between Pittsburgh and West Virginia on TV every year, but not much else.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kedon Slovis didn't transfer from USC to Pitt planning to sit on the bench.
Head coach Pat Narduzzi named Slovis the starting quarterback on Wednesday, ending a months-long competition with Nick Patti for the right to replace Kenny Pickett, who is working next door with the Pittsburgh Steelers after a remarkable final season with the Panthers last fall.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jordan Addison said he didn't know Southern California was the school for him until the moment he set foot on campus for his recruiting visit shortly after entering the transfer portal in May.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi thinks name, image and likeness rules were “probably” violated over the spring, not so subtly hinting those violations led to star wide receiver Jordan Addison's decision to transfer to USC.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Pittsburgh Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi is raising the bar for the defending Atlantic Coast Conference champions.
After saying his team “is not happy with where we were last year,” Narduzzi established the team's goals for the 2022 season on Thursday at ACC Media Days.
The Atlantic Coast Conference changed significantly last season with Pitt winning the league title, Wake Forest taking the Atlantic Division and conference powerhouse Clemson largely out of the mix by mid-October.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh showed a lot of faith in football coach Pat Narduzzi this offseason with a nine-year contract.
The biggest job for Narduzzi to make good on that show of faith will be to prove that the 2021 season wasn’t a fluke.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh and football coach Pat Narduzzi have agreed on a new contract that will keep Narduzzi with the Panthers through at least 2030.
The deal announced Monday comes three months after Narduzzi led Pitt to its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship on its way to an 11-3 record and a No.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Frank Cignetti is ready for a third stint at Pittsburgh.
The Panthers have hired Cignetti as the team's offensive coordinator more than 30 years after he began his coaching career at the school as a graduate assistant and a decade removed from a brief stint as offensive coordinator under former Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt.
