Just read an article about Super Bowl winning coach Mike McCarthy, and this staff he was part of at Pitt blew me away.
Can anyone recall a better, deeper staff than this one?
Probably there are, but this is pretty impressive.
It was at Pitt, as Alex Van Pelt’s quarterbacks coach on a staff that included Jon Gruden, Marvin Lewis, John Fox and Chris Petersen, that Mike McCarthy’s career got the nudge it needed. Two years later, he was coaching for Schottenheimer, a Pitt alum, in Kansas City, where McCarthy was an offensive assistant who worked with Joe Montana.
“You look back on that stuff. I was so blessed. That was a helluva staff,” McCarthy said of his days at Pitt.
The Alex Van Pelt part confuses me a bit, but what a staff for a college team.
