Yesterday, Pitt Basketball Head Coach Jamie Dixon filled out his coaching staff, hiring Pat Skerry to replace the departed Tom Herrion.â†µ
Skerry comes from Providence and looks to be a very solid hire. He helped put together a top 25 class at Rhode Island in 2006. In 2008, FoxSports.com named him as the top mid major coach in the country. And this past year, Skerry helped Providence land two top ESPN 100 recruits.â†µ
He has a solid reputation in the east, and that’s exactly what Pitt needs.
