Dave Wannstedt has been fired as head coach of the University of Pittsburgh, and now the speculation can begin about whether he’ll make a return to the NFL.

The 58-year-old Wannstedt has an 82-86 career record as head coach of the Bears and Dolphins, and after his latest stint at Pittsburgh he’s not particularly well-regarded as a head coach.

But he is well-regarded as a defensive coordinator, and it’s easy to see him making a return to the NFL as an assistant in 2011. Wannstedt has served as the defensive coordinator of both the Cowboys and Dolphins, and as head coach in Miami he worked closely with Rick Spielman, now the Vice President of Player Personnel for the Vikings.

I actually didn't think he did a bad job at Pitt. He'll find another college HC job.

Source: Dave Wannstedt to resign at Pitt
By Brian Bennett
ESPN.com

Pittsburgh coach Dave Wannstedt is out after six seasons leading his alma mater, a source close to Wannstedt told ESPN.com.

Wannstedt will announce his resignation on Tuesday night and remain in the athletic department in a non-coaching capacity.

Offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti Jr. is expected to be named interim coach and lead the Panthers in the BBVA Compass Bowl against Kentucky.

Wannstedt went 42-31 at Pittsburgh and won 10 games last season. But this year, with the Panthers picked as heavy favorites to win the Big East, Pitt stumbled to a 7-5 record. The team did win a share of the Big East title but blew a two-game lead in the standings and was blown out at home by rival West Virginia with the BCS bid on the line.
