It's official. Frank Cignetti, Jr. has been hired as the Offensive Coordinator for YOUR Pittsburgh Panthers.
We're going to have to wait and see what type of job he does, but he has the credentials (serving as an Offensive Coordinator at Cal and working in the NFL in varying offensive/QB capacities). It's likely that his offense will hardly be the passing offense many (including myself) would have liked to see.
He has two things which would seem to appeal to Wannstedt - leading a 'run-first' style offense at Cal and experience as a QB coach...something that will hopefully pay off going into this season where the QB position is an uncertainty.
I'm sure many Pitt fans think we can only go up from here after a 3-0 loss in the Sun Bowl last season.
