Wannstedt will not coach Pitt in the bowl game

It took him entirely too long to announce his decision but Dave Wannstedt said today that he will not coach Pitt in the BBVA Compass Bowl against Kentucky.  Wannstedt leaves Pitt coachless just 5 days before the game.  If you were paying attention over the weekend, you know that Pittsburgh just fired its recently hired head coach Mike Haywoodyouquithittingme for felony domestic battery.

As of now, Pitt Defensive Coordinator Phil Bennett will be the interim head coach.  But he still has time to get out of there before Randall Cobb ends his career.

Go Cats.

    here’s a high quality version of the thug Terrence Jone’s takedown attempt of Deandre Liggins. NCAA should ban TJ for a few games for this blatant attempt. Could have seriously injured Liggins:

    I think I will take a stab at this… it can’t be any worse than coaching the P.R. National Team…

    Anyone notice Mike Marra flip the ball hitting Terrence Jones? It was in the 2nd half and Jones was called for a foul while guarding Marra. Just goes to show the frustration level of the kid at the time.

    15) You always crack me up. Maybe when you contact Legion, you can get Sypher to be Billy CLYDE’S waitress.

    6) Thx. TJ is a typical Tard. That was a cowardly act, by a sore loser. He should be suspended and an apology given to Deandre and UK.

    21..Your right bud.

    We haven’t had a review by the NCAA on our guys getting whacked since Laettners “step up” on Timberlake. So I suppose…what else is new. Ya know?

    Hey 6:

    It was Terrence Jennings not Terrence Jones. Terrence Jones plays for the good guys!

    I’m sure Ricky P. will disipline Jennings someway. Like suspend him for the next games National Anthem. (Actually he will probably get use of “The Table”).
