Report: Kevin Stallings to meet with Pitt to discuss his departure

Kevin Stallings

Pitt is looking to part ways with Kevin Stallings after a disastrous season, and it sounds like conversations between the two sides will begin on Thursday.

Pitt lost to Notre Dame in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Tuesday to finish the season 8-24. They were an embarrassing 0-18 in conference play.

Pittsburgh radio host Andrew Fillipponi reported on Wednesday that Stallings, Pitt’s AD and attorneys will meet on Thursday to discuss terms of Stallings’ departure.

Apparently there is an issue over Stallings’ buyout. 93.7 The Fan’s Colin Durant reports that Stallings was offered $7.5 million of his $9.4 million buyout and rejected that amount.

Stallings just completed his second season as Pitt’s head coach since taking over for Jamie Dixon, who left for TCU. The Panthers went 16-17 in Stallings’ first season, but cratered to 8-24 this season. Prior to Pitt, Stallings was the longtime head coach at Vanderbilt.
