Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi isn't planning on going anywhere anytime soon, as university athletic director Heather Lyke announced Wednesday that the sides have agreed to a seven-year contract through the 2024 season.

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

"I am tremendously blessed to work with such great leadership at the University of Pittsburgh in Athletic Director Heather Lyke and Chancellor Patrick Gallagher," Narduzzi said. "When I initially accepted the head coaching position at Pitt three years ago this month, I said we could achieve great things if we were all moving in the same direction. Thanks to Chancellor Gallagher and Heather, we are all definitely moving in the same direction with a shared vision for excellence on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

"It is a tremendous honor to be the head football coach at Pitt. My family and I are extremely appreciative of the opportunity to be part of this great university and city."

Since arriving at Pitt following an eight-year tenure as defensive coordinator at Michigan State, Narduzzi has led the Panthers to an overall record of 21-17, along with a 14-10 clip in conference play as well as a pair of bowl games.
