PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Pitt coach Paul Chryst’s coaching staff grew by one Friday, as Bobby Engram was named wide receivers coach.

Engram played 14 years in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs. He’s arguably the greatest receiver to ever come out of Penn State as a three-time All-American and three-time All-Big Ten selection from 1993-95.

Engram still ranks as the Nittany Lions’ all-time leader in receiving yards (3,026), receiving touchdowns (31) and 100-yard receiving games (16). He is second in receptions (167) behind Deon Butler (179).

Engram was the first ever recipient of the Biletnikoff Award in 1994.

For his NFL career, Engram had 650 catches for 7.751 yards and 35 touchdowns. He played in Super Bowl XL for the Seattle Seahawks against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Most recently, Engram coached with the San Francisco 49ers as an offensive assistant. The 49ers won 14 games in the regular season and reached the NFC Championship game this season.

Here is the current Pitt coaching staff:

Bob Bostad: offensive coordinator/offensive line
Bobby Engram: wide receivers
Eddie Faulkner: running backs
Matt House: secondary
Dave Huxtable: defensive coordinator
Joe Rudolph: assistant head coach/quarterbacks
Chris Haering: linebackers
Jim Hueber: tight ends
