Pitt AD Supports Sinking Ship

When your athletic director starts making public statements offering his support for the coaching staff, it's usually a sign that the head coach's days are numbered.

Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson offered a show of support Monday for Dave Wannstedt, taking pressure off the Pitt coach after Saturday's 27-17 season-opening loss to Bowling Green.

The Panthers were 13 1/2-point favorites.

"In these situations, nobody's more disappointed than Dave and our team at the results of the game," Pederson said. "But I also know there isn't any group that's going to work harder to get us back on track than Dave and his coaches and the team. For Dave, this isn't really a job, this is a passion. He's dedicated to building a winning program here and he has all of our support as he works at that."
