Former college quarterback Nate Tice enters his second season on the Pitt football staff. Tice will serve in an assistant capacity on the offensive side of the ball for the second consecutive season.
A 2012 graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a degree in consumer affairs, Tice was a member of two Big Ten title teams during his three seasons (2009-11) in Madison. The Badgers went a combined 32-8 during that span and played in two Rose Bowls.
While at Wisconsin, Tice spent significant practice and preparation time with Paul Chryst, who served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach during Tice's career.
Tice began his collegiate career at the University of Central Florida before transferring to Wisconsin. He was a prep standout at Edina (Minn.) High School, completing nearly 65% of his passes as a senior en route to All-Metro honors.
He is the son of Mike Tice, the former head coach of the Minnesota Vikings (2001-05). Before embarking on his successful pro coaching career, Mike played tight end in the NFL from 1981-95 with Seattle, Washington and Minnesota.
