The University of Pittsburgh has named Shawn Watson as their new OC. Shawn Watson has a quality resume to back his appointment as Pitt offensive Coordinator and will also have a key role in the Quarterback’s room. He is also one of coach Narduzzi’s closes friends and mentor from their stint at Miami Ohio from 90-92.
“Shawn Watson was one of my first mentors in this business,” Narduzzi said. “He sat me down as a young coach and taught me how to work with wide receivers in my first full-time job at Miami in the early 1990s. Ever since that time, we have always talked about being able to reunite on the same staff again. I’m really thrilled that the time has finally arrived and he’ll be joining us at Pitt as our new offensive coordinator.”
Shawn has coached the likes of Teddy Bridgewater at Louisville, he helped guide Colorado to Big 12 Championship games and a Championship in 2001 and he was the mastermind behind the Cornuskers offenses from 2006-2010. His resume is much more extensive than that, but those are some of the highlights.
Max Browne, the transfer Quarterback from USC tweeted out that he received the greatest gift of all, “A Playcaller.”
Not only is he accomplished as a coach and play caller, he has been around the block a few times and probably will not be ready to go on the first train out of town. That is a plus by all accounts.
