Pitt associated head coach Tom Herrion is leaving the Panthers after three seasons on coach Jamie Dixon’s staff to become the next coach of Marshall.

Herrion will be introduced as Marshall’s new coach at 1 p.m. today at a news conference at the Huntington, W.Va.-based school.

Herrion, 42, who interviewed last season for vacant jobs at Holy Cross and Fairfield, succeeds Donnie Jones, who resigned at Marshall to take over as coach of Central Florida, another Conference USA member.

Herrion is the fourth Pitt assistant to earn a head coaching job in the past five years, following Barry Rohrssen (Manhattan) and Joe Lombardi (IUP) in 2006 and Mike Rice (Robert Morris) in 2007. Other members of Dixon’s staff to move: Orlando Antigua left for John Calapari’s staff in Memphis and former director of basketball operations David Cox was hired as an assistant at Georgetown in 2007.
