ESPN is reporting that Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi is expected to become the Pittsburgh head coach by the end of the week.

Narduzzi views Pittsburgh as a destination position, which is critical to the school after having been through massive turnover in recent years.

He has coached some of the nation's most productive, physical, blue-collar defenses over the past eight seasons under Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio.

The Spartans ranked first in the Big Ten and in the top 10 of FBS in total defense and rushing defense for three consecutive seasons under the 48-year-old Narduzzi, who won the Broyles Award in 2013 as the nation's top assistant coach.
Narduzzi will replace Paul Chryst, who left to become the head coach at Wisconsin.
