Pitt promoted safeties coach Cory Sanders to assistant head coach, head coach Pat Narduzzi announced Tuesday.

Sanders, 39, has been with the Panthers since 2018 and will continue working with the secondary and overseeing the safeties.

“From the day we hired Cory back in 2018, he has been an outstanding resource for our entire program,” Narduzzi said. “This promotion reflects the deep impact he already makes on our players, coaches and staff. Cory is an excellent teacher and mentor who makes everyone around him better. He sees the larger picture in everything we do. Everyone in our building will benefit from his expanded role with our program.”

Sanders previously coached at Western Michigan, West Florida, his alma mater Saint Joseph’s (Indiana), Elmhurst and North Central (Illinois).

“I am incredibly grateful to Coach Narduzzi for giving me the opportunity to make an even greater impact for Pitt football,” Sanders said. “The University of Pittsburgh is a tremendous place and it has been such an honor to work on behalf of the Pitt football program the past six years. I truly believe our best is yet to come and I’m excited to work with our coaches and players to bring another ACC championship trophy back to Pitt.”

Pitt opens the 2024 regular season at home against Kent State on Aug. 31. The Panthers finished 3-9 last season and 2-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
