Multiple sources have confirmed that two candidates have interviewed for the vacant Pitt football head-coaching job since Monday -- Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley and Alabama assistant head coach Sal Sunseri, and that Bradley has emerged as a leading candidate to get the job.
Both men were interviewed on campus by a small group of senior athletic administration officials led by athletic director Steve Pederson, who, contrary to numerous Internet reports and rumors, is still the point man leading the search.
Pederson and company met with Sunseri Monday and had two meetings with Bradley, including a formal interview Tuesday night.
Bradley is expected to interview later this week for the head-coaching position at Connecticut after Randy Edsall left to take the Maryland job over the past weekend.
Bradley is considered "the leading candidate" by a source with knowledge of the situation, but, as of last night, had not been offered the job, and multiple sources around him say he had not talked with Pitt in an official capacity Wednesday.
