Pitt seniors Murphy and Giubilato leave team


Pitt seniors Bryan Murphy and Mark Giubilato will not return to the team this season, coach Paul Chryst said Thursday. Both players, who had been with the program since 2010, will remain in school.
Murphy started 21 games the past two seasons at defensive end, totaling 11 tackles for a loss, six of which were sacks. With spring practice starting Sunday, he faced competition from rising sophomore Shakir Soto, who started the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl last season in place of Murphy. Also, junior defensive ends Devin Cook and Ejuan Price are expected to return from injuries.
Giubilato, a fullback, played in 37 games the past three seasons, with two starts in 2012. He played mainly on special teams last year, totaling 11 tackles.
Pitt opens spring drills with 11 seniors on scholarship.
