The Panther offense last year was, to put it bluntly, a disaster. Yes, Darrin Hall and Qadree Ollison each rushed for over 1,000 yards. Yes, they had a historic output against Virginia Tech. Yes, this team won the Coastal division and earned the right to spend an evening getting manhandled by Clemson. However, anyone who actually watched the Panthers play last season knew that this was all in spite of former Offensive Coordinator Shawn Watson. We are nearly 8 months removed from his ouster and I am still flabbergasted that one person could be so bad at his job and keep getting hired as had even prior to coming to Pitt. I have said and will continue to say some very not nice things about his skill as an Offensive Coordinator because I am so astonished at how poor he was at his job. That’s all in the past though and Mark Whipple has come to town to re-make the offense. While we have to wait for Saturday to see exactly what “Whippleball” will look like, we can take a look at the personnel that he inherited and get an idea of what to expect.
