Pitt secondary coach Renaldo Hill is leaving for a position with the Miami Dolphins. Hill spent the past three seasons with Pat Narduzzi's staff. "Coaching in the NFL has been Renaldo's aspiration and we are thrilled he's getting this opportunity with the Dolphins," Narduzzi wrote on Twitter today. "... Renaldo will always be a Panther and always be part of our program."

I can confirm Pitt is hiring Randy Bates as defensive coordinator, as first reported by Yahoo! earlier today. Bates coached linebackers at Northwestern, which could move recently hired Tim McGarigle into that role. But I'm told Pat Fitzgerald will take his time sorting out the roles on defense.

Whitehead had 60 tackles, four pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery, appearing in nine games after being suspended for the first three. He earned second-team All-ACC honors in 2016. "I want to thank the entire Pitt football program and university, my teammates and the Pitt community for an amazing experience," he wrote on Twitter. "Pittsburgh will always be my home."

Pitt signs Narduzzi to new deal through 2024

Pittsburgh has signed coach Pat Narduzzi, who has been with the Panthers for three seasons, to a new contract that will keep him there through the 2024 season.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi has received a seven-year contract extension through the 2024 season. He's 21-17 with the Panthers but has the most wins through his first three seasons of any Pitt coach. He also is 2-0 against teams ranked in the top-2 nationally (Clemson in 2016, Miami in 2017).
