According to coachingsearch.com Pitt has, or will hire, Iowa State defensive backs coach Troy Douglas. With 27 years experience, Douglas has a good reputation as a coach, is a Jacksonville, FL native who recruits in Florida, and employs an aggressive style that leads to a lot of interceptions. At South Florida in 2007, the Bulls led the nation in interceptions. What this means for the rest of the staff remains to be seen. Hank Poteat coached the cornerbacks this past season, and Matt House doubled as the safeties coach.
It's also important to note that Pete Roussel of coaching search.com, a highly respected website, also reports that Paul Chryst will name a new wide receiver coach in the near future.
NOTE: An Ames, Iowa newspaper reports that Douglas has not decided yet. In typical Pitt fashion, Roussel then asks if Douglas is having second thoughts. Why can't Pitt just hire somebody without theatrics?
