Pittsburgh names Chad Voytik starting quarterback
Chad Voytik won the QB competition and will start the team's opener against Delaware on Sept. 30.
Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst has named Chad Voytik the team's starting QB heading into the 2014 season, a source told CBSSports.com.
The 6-1, 205-pound Voytik played in four games as a backup to Tom Savage last season, completing 6 of 11 passes for 116 yards. He played the second half of the team's 30-27 win over Bowling Green in the Little Caesars Bowl, relieving an injured Savage (now with the Houston Texans) and rushing for a touchdown.
The Panthers, who were 7-6 last season, open the 2014 season against Delaware on Aug. 30.
