Narduzzi hires Chaney, Harley as assistants at Pitt

PITTSBURGH (AP) New Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi has hired Jim Chaney as offensive coordinator and named Rob Hurley as linebackers coach.

Chaney spent the last two seasons in the same position at Arkansas, helping the Razorbacks score nearly 32 points a game as the school posted its first winning season since 2011. Chaney will also serve as quarterbacks coach at Pitt. The 53-year-old Chaney's previous coaching stops include Tennessee, Purdue and the NFL's St. Louis Rams.

Harley spent 2014 as the linebackers coach at Florida International. He worked as a graduate assistant at Michigan State under Narduzzi in 2012 and 2013. The move also reunites Harley with Josh Conklin, named as Pitt's defensive coordinator last week. Conklin held the same position at FIU.
