PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – With a women’s basketball head coaching vacancy, Pitt looked no further than across town to find their replacement for Agnus Berenato. Suzie McConnell-Serio from Duquesne University was announced earlier today as the successor to the program.

McConnell-Serio told Starkey, Miller and Mueller on 93-7 The FAN about how excited she was to get this job.

“Hopefully it’s my last job and yes, it is a dream come true right now,” she said.  “After going through this entire process and learning about Pitt and the resources and the people that are here, I truly am excited and grateful for this opportunity to be here.”

With expectations for women’s basketball being raised at Pitt after the firing of Berenato, McConnell-Serio told us what’s realistic as far as getting people interested in women’s basketball.
