Panther Hollow: Coach Rudolph Is Comfortable With Sunseri

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Pitt offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph told 93.7 The Fan he thinks third-year starting quarterback Tino Sunseri is more than talented enough for his role, but still has room for growth.

"I think he's been doing a good job, he's putting the time and working his tail off," Rudolph said. "I like his approach to it, I think he's trying to get every last detail down, and I think he realizes that will be a continuing battle, and he's got to keep growing a little bit."

Rudolph explained that the home opener against YSU Saturday will be a chance for Sunseri and the rest of the team to show how they respond in the heat of the moment. Decision-making under game pressure is a skill Rudolph noted Sunseri needs to improve.

Rudolph also discussed what he expects from YSU, how the Panthers' offensive line has made great improvements.

Check out everything Rudolph had to say:

Kickoff Saturday between Pitt and Youngstown State at Heinz Field is scheduled for 6:00 P.M. on your flagship home of Panther football, SportsRadio 93.7 The Fan.
