In what's clearly the biggest coaching shake-up of the year, Pittsburgh saw six-year head coach Dave Wannstedt resign from his head coaching post yesterday. After the news was announced, Wannstedt took to the podium, flanked by his players, for one last press conference to clear the air. Doubtless, he took as much time as it needed to answer every qu -- wait, I'm told he took things in a slightly different direction:
What? Like 12 seconds isn't enough? Jeez, Captain Needy, lighten up.
Obviously, Wannstedt's solemn demeanor indicates that his resignation isn't exactly voluntary. It's good to see, then, that his players stood by him one last time. But the clapping? At a resignation news conference? He's not doing this for applause! Some dignity, please.
