Pitt AD given 5-year extension

  • June 11, 2013

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh athletic director Steve Pederson has signed a five-year contract extension that will keep him at the school through 2018.

Pittsburgh chancellor Mark Nordenberg called the deal a tribute to the hard work of Pederson, who spearheaded the school’s move from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Pitt officially joins the ACC on July 1.

Nordenberg called Pederson “the driving force” of the transition, adding the school has “never been better positioned for future success.”

Pederson, who begins his 13th year at Pitt this summer, said he is “fortunate” to continue with the Panthers.
