Pittsburgh is turning to Duke'sJeff Capel to rebuild its reeling basketball program.
As Pittsburgh Sports Now has reported, eight players from last year's team asked and received permission to be released from their scholarship in the event they wanted to transfer from Pitt. Prior to coaching at Duke, Capel was a collegiate head coach for nine years. But Capel has been a successful head coach, with at least 18 wins in six of his first seven seasons (overlapping VCU and Oklahoma) and a.614 overall winning percentage if you give back the vacated wins from 2009-10.
The Pitt Panthers have hired Jeff Capel as their new head coach following the firing of Kevin Stallings a few weeks ago.
Even after being knocked out of the NCAA Tournament, Duke can take over the news cycle on Final Four week. The 43-year-old Capel has a 162-110 career record.
"Duke University and Coach K have had a profound impact on my life", said Capel. With Griffin in the team, the Sooners made the second round of NCAA Tournament in Capel's second season at the helm and then followed that up by making the Elite 8 the following year. Capel will need that strong recruiting acumen at Pitt, who has struggled to bring in highly regarded prospects since leaving the Big East and a lot of players intend to leave the program now. "Coach Capel is a high-energy leader committed to being a part of our university and the city of Pittsburgh".
Capel was not implicated on the violations from Taliaferro. Stallings went 24-41 and finished this season winless in conference play.
Most of the intrigue lies in Capel's decision to take the job rather than sticking around at Duke, where some presumed he would take over when Mike Krzyzewski decides to retire.
Now, comparing recruiting at Duke and Pitt is a little like contrasting apples and oranges, but still, Capel clearly connects with high school kids and knows the ACC landscape. Capel also signed freshman forward and ACC Player of the Year Marvin Bagley III last year.
