When Mark Dantonio retired at Michigan State yesterday just before signing day, a few logical names came up as top targets to replace him. Chief among them was former Spartan defensive coordinator and 2013 Broyles Award winner as an assistant in East Lansing Pat Narduzzi, who has gone 36-29 in five seasons leading the Pitt program.
If his comments from earlier today via both Narduzzi and Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke weren’t enough to convince everyone that Narduzzi has no interest in leaving Pitt for the Michigan State job (see update at bottom of page), Narduzzi took to Twitter to shout from the rooftop that he’s not going anywhere.
…and he did it using the epic scene from Wolf of Wall Street. Let’s be honest, this should really be every coach’s go-to scene when sharing that they’re staying put.
Narduzzi isn’t the first to channel this scene to send a message, and it certainly won’t be the last. While some coaches prefer to tip toe around the speculation, this is a more emphatic approach.
