    Dave Wannstedt Resigns at Pittsburgh
    By Brett McMurphy

    Dave Wannstedt firedDave Wannstedt has resigned from his position as football coach at Pittsburgh, sources have told FanHouse.

    Wannstedt had been coaching his alma mater since 2005, amassing a 42-31 overall record and 24-18 mark in the Big East. In 2010, the Panthers qualified for their third consecutive bowl appearance under Wannstedt, but took a big step backwards from the previous two seasons, when the Panthers went 9-4 and 10-3, respectively.

    Pitt came into the season with expectations as high as they had been in some time. The Panthers were ranked and predicted by many to qualify for a BCS bowl. Instead, inconsistent play saw them finish just 7-5 and headed to the BBVA Compass Bowl to face 6-6 Kentucky. The low points of the season would be a 31-3 loss to Miami at home and a 35-10 loss to rival West Virginia. The Panthers were also upset by UConn, 30-28, when they still had a good chance to get to the BCS.

    Frank Cignetti, the Panthers' offensive coordinator, has been named the interim coach for Pitt in the meantime.

    Score! I was hoping for this from the day Pitt hired him. Here's to hoping that Cignetti never gets the "interim" taken off of his title.

    Lousy coach who should've easily won a down Big East this year. Much better suited for a coordinator role than a HC.
