Pitt football: Sal Sunseri heading to Florida State

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

Pittsburgh alumnus Sal Sunseri will reportedly join FSU's coaching staff as an assistant.

University of Pittsburgh alumnus Sal Sunseri has accepted an assistant head coaching job with the Florida State Seminoles, according to multiple reports.

Sunseri was mentioned as a possible replacement for Dave Huxtable as the defensive coordinator at Pitt. The alumnus played as a linebacker for the team from 1978-81 and coached with the Panthers from 1985-1992. Since then, he has held coaching positions with Michigan State, LSU, Alabama and the Carolina Panthers of the NFL.

He was most recently employed as the defensive coordinator at Tennessee.

While Florida State has yet to officially name Sunseri as a member of the coaching staff, he was seen at the team's practice on Monday. He is expected to coach the team's linebackers or defensive ends but could also help with the special teams, as Eddie Gran is leaving to coach at the University of Cincinnati.

Sunseri had previously coached with FSU's head coach Jimbo Fisher while employed on Nick Saban's staff at LSU.
