On Thursday, Pat Narduzzi coached his final game at Michigan State, helping lead the Spartans to a 42-41 victory against Baylor in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl.
Narduzzi is now Pittsburgh's head coach.
Friday morning, Narduzzi departed for the Panthers. It was pretty tough for Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis to say goodbye to his outgoing defensive coordinator.

Narduzzi, 48, had been at Michigan State since 2007. He helped build the Spartans into one of the best defensive programs in the country, winning the Broyles Award, given to the country's top assistant coach, in 2013.
