Penn State's Bradley interviews for Pitt position wire reports

PITTSBURGH -- Longtime Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley has interviewed for the Pitt coaching job that became vacant when Mike Haywood was fired 2½ weeks after being hired.

Bradley talked with Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson and also met with members of Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg's administration, according to a Pitt official with knowledge of the meetings. The person spoke to the Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the school isn't making any formal announcements about interviewed candidates.

Bradley, known for his recruiting skills, was not interviewed before Pitt hired Haywood on Dec. 16, little more than a week after coach Dave Wannstedt was forced to resign. Haywood, the former Miami (Ohio) coach, was fired last weekend following his arrest on a domestic violence charge in Indiana.

Pitt's previous search consisted only of Division I head coaches. This search has been expanded to include assistants.
