As reported by Brad Wilson at Lehigh Valley Live, Lehigh's head coach, Pat Santoro, will interview tomorrow with Pittsburgh University administrators for the position of head coach. 

Pitt has been in the market for a new head coach since January when the team dismissed Jason Peters from the job. 

Pitt finished 3rd in the ACC this year and 32nd at the NCAAs. Lehigh finished 2nd in the EIWAs and 12th at the National Championships.

Santoro, 1989 Pitt graduate and national champion, reportedly told his team that he would not leave the Lehigh Valley unless Pitt's administration invested heavily in the program and upgraded the wrestling facilities. Santoro has been at the helm of the Mountain Hawk wrestling team for the past nine seasons. 

No word yet on when we can expect a final decision, either from Santoro or the Pittsburgh Panthers. 

Check out the video below and watch Coach Santoro corner Darian Cruz as he wins an NCAA title at 125 pounds a little over two weeks ago in St. Louis.
