THE 'STACHE MAKES A RETURN: In Pittsburgh, Paul Zeise noted former Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt will "offer his expert analysis on Fox Sports college football pregame studio shows as well as co-host a weekly preview show on the Big Ten Network." Wannstedt said, “I reached out to several media outlets to see if I could get into the TV side of things and Fox offered me this job after several discussions." He added that he will "appear in the studio for a one-hour pregame show prior to all Fox college football broadcasts and then also do the halftime and post-game show." In addition, he will "co-host a weekly preview show each Wednesday on the Big Ten Network and will host an NFL/College football weekend wrap-type radio show in Chicago each Monday." Wannstedt: "Obviously, I’ll be busy but this is a good change for me. It was time to do something different" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 7/24).
