Steve Pederson has proven you can come home again.

Pederson will be introduced today as Pitt's athletic director at a news conference scheduleded for 12:30 p.m., according to two sources within the Pitt athletic department. Pederson was Pitt's athletic director from 1996 to 2002 before leaving to the same job at the University of Nebraska. He grew up in that state.

Pederson, however, was fired by Nebraska in October mostly because his highest profile hire -- football coach Bill Callahan -- failed. Callahan also was fired last week following a 5-7 season.


More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
