Pittsburgh (KDKA)- For the third consecutive season, Pitt coach Jamie Dixon is looking to hire an assistant coach.

Towson University has hired Pat Skerry as its new coach. Skerry replaces Pat Kennedy, who resigned last month after seven seasons. The Tigers went 0-18 in the Colonial Athletic Association this year.

Skerry is a big loss for Pitt because of his recruiting ability. He was the person responsible for bringing All-American Khem Birch to Pitt.

Prior to Skerry, Dixon lost Tom Herrion (Marshall) and Barry Rohrssen (Manhattan). Rohrssen was fired following this season.
