PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Pitt Football Head Coach Paul Chryst said he is excited about the upcoming football schedule for his players and the fans, and hopes they’ll be playing in front of a great atmosphere.

Chryst joined Starkey, Miller and Muller on The FAN to talk about the unveiling of Pitt’s 2013 football schedule, and said he isn’t worried about replacing Villanova with Florida State to start the season because they were going to have to play the Seminoles and some point anyways.
