Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings has agreed to a deal to replace Jamie Dixon at Pittsburgh.
Stallings has informed his players that he is taking the Pitt job.
Stallings, 55, had been the head coach at Vandy for 17 seasons and made the NCAA tournament seven times.
The Commodores finished 19-13 overall and in a three-way tie for third place in the SEC. The Commodores made the NCAA tourney and lost to Wichita State in the First Four.
Panthers athletic director Scott Barnes had reached out to several other candidates but was spurned.
Dixon announced last week he was leaving Pitt to go to his alumator TCU. Pitt made the tournament this season but lost in the first round to Wisconsin. They finished 21-12.
