Wannstedt quits under pressure at Pittsburgh

Dave Wannstedt is very popular with alumni, fans and the University of Pittsburgh’s administration. He had a record of 42-31 record in six seasons on the sidelines.

But Wannstedt suffered upset losses to Ohio University and Bowling Green and he never was able to lead the Panthers to a Bowl Championship Series game and that did not sit well with athletics director Steve Pederson who said despite the record, the program was underachieving.

Wannstedt resigned recently after a disappointing season with a 7-5 record and qualified for a minor bowl on January 8 against Kentucky in the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama at Legion Field. Pederson felt that with the Big East being somewhat weak this year, the Panthers should’ve won it instead of finishing in a three-way tie with Connecticut and West Virginia. The Panthers were favored to win the conference during the preseason.

Wannstedt is expected to stay on with the school in a non-coaching position.

Most sports fans might not know, but Wannstedt is a Pittsburgh grad and former offensive lineman who blocked for Heisman Trophy winning running back Tony Dorsett in the 1970′s.

Pederson decided to make a change at the head coaching position before the bowl games because all of the top candidates would be gone after the bowl games end. Also, he wants a coach in place due to recruiting and the national letter-of-intent signing day.
