I know. I too thought Tino Sunseri had graduated.
But, he hasn’t and will be Pitt’s starting quarterback for another season, coach Paul Chryst said during the second day of ACC spring meetings (yes, Pitt’s there).
“He was the best quarterback we had out of spring. That’s why he’s the starter,” Chryst said. “Right now, if you were to say who gives you the best chance to have success, it would be him. So coach the heck out of him.”
Sunseri has been the starter for the Panthers the past two seasons, but has been woefully inconsistent at times. Part of that rests on Sunseri’s shoulders; the other is due largely to a revolving door of coaches and no offensive line help.
With Chryst replacing Todd Graham, one could make an argument that Sunseri’s chances of being leap-frogged by Mark Myers or Trey Anderson were as good as ever, but the decision can’t come as a complete surprise.
The fact is Sunseri has the experience. For today, it means he has the job.
