Pitt football: Who is Mike Haywood?
Just who, exactly, is Mike Haywood, the man that Pittsburgh has apparently hired to take over its football program?
Well, Haywood has long been one of the top college football assistants in the country. For 22 years he was an assistant at, among other places, Notre Dame (under Charlie Weis), LSU (under Gerry DiNardo and Nick Saban), and Texas (under Mack Brown).
Haywood's first head coaching gig was at Miami (Ohio), where he promptly went 1-11 in his first year in 2009, taking over a depleted team. This year? 9-4 and the Mid-American Conference championship with a stunning 26-21 victory over then-nationally ranked and favored Northern Illinois.
That earned the RedHawks a berth in the GoDaddy.com Bowl on January 6 against Middle Tennessee State. It is not known yet if Haywood will be coaching Miami in the bowl game.
