Pittsburgh Jurkovec Football

University of Pittsburgh quarterback Phil Jurkovec is introduced during an NCAA college football news conference in Pittsburgh, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023. The well-traveled quarterback is returning to his hometown to play for Pat Narduzzi at Pitt after stops at Notre Dame and Boston College.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Phil Jurkovec committed to Notre Dame as a sophomore in high school back in the spring of 2016, a decision the quarterback described as difficult because it meant choosing the Fighting Irish over the hometown Pittsburgh Panthers.

It was understandable at the time. Pat Narduzzi was still attempting to find his footing entering his second season at Pitt and the Panthers were stuck in the middle of the pack in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Fast forward nearly seven years, and things have changed.
