Jeff Capel, Duke associate head coach, is heading to Pitt, sources say

Duke associate head coach Jeff Capel has reportedly been hired as the next head coach at Pittsburgh

With the team in peril after a awful season, more bad news hit the Oklahoma program as reports that McDonald's All-American Tiny Gallon had received impermissible benefits and that Capel's assistant, Oronde Taliaferro, had resigned.

Duke associate head coach Jeff Capel III has agreed to be the next head coach of Pittsburgh, according to sources close the basketball programs at Duke and Pitt.

A former Duke player, Capel has been a member of the Blue Devils' coaching staff for seven years.

Capel also spent five seasons as the head coach at Oklahoma and four seasons as the head coach at VCU.

Prior to his return to Duke, Capel had successful head coaching stints at the University of Oklahoma (2007-11) and Virginia Commonwealth University (2003-06).

It's been almost three weeks since Pitt fired coach Kevin Stallings, after a winless campaign in the ACC made it inevitable. Stallings went 16-17 in his first year with the Panthers but finished 8-24 this season and didn't win an ACC game.

The university announced on Tuesday that Jeff Capel, formerly a Duke basketball assistant, has signed a seven year deal to take over and try and rebuild the basketball program.

Efforts to reach Capel were unsuccessful.

Scheyer, a player on Duke's 2010 national championship team, has been an assistant with the Blue Devils since 2014 after a short professional playing career. It didn't take him long to find success. After missing the NCAA Tournament for the past two seasons, Capel will likely shoot more for an NIT appearance I the next few years before making a leap-and-bounds type move towards the big dance.

Capel's tenure with the Sooners ended when he was sacked in March 2011 as part of the fallout from an NCAA investigation that discovered former Oklahoma assistant Oronde Taliiaferro broke NCAA rules by failing to report that a player had received an impermissible extra benefit and by lying to investigators.

Now, comparing recruiting at Duke and Pitt is a little like contrasting apples and oranges, but still, Capel clearly connects with high school kids and knows the ACC landscape.
