Coach Chryst Headshot
Pitt Football
Name Paul Chryst
Position Head Coach and Quarterbacks

Paul Chryst did not have the luxury of easing into his new job as head football coach at the University of Pittsburgh. And that's exactly how he wanted it.

At his introductory press conference in December 2011, Chryst seemed eager to finish the ceremonial preliminaries, roll up his sleeves and get to work. "That's what I'm excited for," Chryst said. "To be able to start putting the action and the plan together. You don't talk about doing things. You just go do them."
