All signs are pointing to Wannstedt closing the deal

Written by Paul Zeise on .

 Has Frank Cignetti Jr. agreed to become Pitt's offensive coordinator?

 I'd say the answer is yes based on a number of conversations I have had this morning and last night on this subject and I expect an announcement on the matter at some point in the next day or two. 

 Coaching searches are always a pain because nobody will talk to you on the record, some will talk off the record but only give you bits and pieces of information and there are always so many rumors floating around and people throwing names that you have to chase them all. And being as we are a news organization, we can't just write stuff based on rumors - and that makes it frustrating.  

  That's why I am glad this one appears to be finally over and Cignetti appears to be a tremendous addition to the Panthers staff as he comes with a great reputation as a recruiter, an offensive mind and his local ties and name recognition are only a bonus.
