Official Statement from Pitt AD Heather Lyke on the Dismissal of Kevin Stallings

University of Pittsburgh Director of Athletics Heather Lyke announced today that Kevin Stallings will no longer be the Panthers’ head men’s basketball coach.
“I want to express my appreciation to Coach Stallings for his commitment to our program,” Lyke said. “In moving forward, we have tremendous expectations for our men’s basketball program at Pitt and I believe we can achieve great things within the Atlantic Coast Conference and nationally. A national search for the next Pitt head coach will begin immediately.”

In his two seasons as the head coach of the Panthers, Stallings went 24-41 (4-32 ACC) including an 8-24 (0-18 ACC) campaign this season. He is reportedly owed a buyout somewhere in the range of $9m.
