Pitt has started the process of finding its next coach, interviewing Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell Thursday and Florida International coach Mario Cristobal today.

They are the first known candidates to be interviewed. Scheduled to be interviewed Saturday is Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst.

Several other candidates are also expected to get an interview, including Northern Illinois coach Dave Doeren.

One name to scratch off the list is Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads, who was near the top of Pitt's wish list, as Rhoads has agreed to a 10-year contract extension with Iowa State according to ABC 5 in Des Moines.
