Pittsburgh's men's basketball's head coaching search doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon.

ESPN college basketball insider Jeff Goodman reports that St. Bonaventure's head coach, Mark Schmidt, has elected to stay at his current school.


The 55-year-old head coach has been at St. Bonaventure since 2007. He's gone 192-152.

The Bonnies made the NCAA Tournament this year. They lost in the first round.

It's unclear where Pittsburgh's head coaching search will go from here. Duke assistant Jon Scheyer was reportedly offered the job, although later reports said he was not a candidate.

Pitt's fan base is surely growing restless at this point, though.

Stay tuned.
