"I am honored to be named the head coach of the University of Pittsburgh men's basketball program", Capel said in a team release.
On Tuesday reports circulated that Duke associate head coach Jeff Capel is expected to be hired as Pittsburgh's new head men's basketball coach.
While it's too cliche to call the hire "perfect", the Pitt program has to be extremely pleased, as Capel appears to be a great choice to bring the Panthers back to prominence. Prior to that, he was head coach at Oklahoma, where he compiled a 96-69 record in five seasons and led the Sooners to the Elite Eight in 2009.
For Pitt, Capel checks all the major boxes. He was 162-110 as a head coach. At VCU, he led the Rams back to the NCAA Tournament in 2004 for the first time in almost a decade.
Capel's tenure with the Sooners ended when he was sacked in March 2011 as part of the fallout from an NCAA investigation that discovered former Oklahoma assistant Oronde Taliiaferro broke NCAA rules by failing to report that a player had received an impermissible extra benefit and by lying to investigators.
