As is always the case, there are the names being thrown out there and the guys who appear to be real candidates and that list usually evolves as the process goes forward.
So far, the real candidates, are at least guys where there have been some preliminary contacts with or even just some feelers sent:
Al Golden, Temple
Dana Holgorsen, Oklahoma State
Those are the two guys who we know have had some contact with Pitt about the coaching job.
We also know that these guys have reached out to Pitt about getting into the process in one way or another:
Teryl Austin, Florida
Sal Sunseri, Alabama
Mark Stoops, Florida State
Tom Bradley, Penn State
Again, this is the start of the process and many of these things are all just preliminary and as we always know, these names will change (or maybe they won't if Steve Pederson finds his man quickly) but this is the first step towards weeding out the fake or pipe dream candidates and zeroing in on who is really involved in this process.
