Pitt football coach Dave Wannstedt announced today that defensive line coach Greg Gattuso has been given the additional title of assistant head coach.

Gattuso, 45, has spent three seasons on Wannstedt’s staff after 12 years as head coach at Duquesne University. Gattuso was a finalist for Pitt’s defensive coordinator opening, but Wannstedt hired former Southern Methodist coach Phil Bennett.

“From a staff standpoint, Greg Gattuso will be my assistant head coach,” Wannstedt said. “He’s done a great job recruiting in the area, and I think he can bring a lot more to the table.”

Bob Junko formerly held the assistant head coach title from 2000 until 2006 under Wannstedt and his predecessor, Walt Harris, before moving into an administrative role last fall as director of football relations and program enhancement.
