Pittsburgh hiring Duke assistant coach Jeff Capel

					Report Jeff Capel Head Coach at Pitt

With the team in peril after a terrible season, more bad news hit the Oklahoma program as reports that McDonald's All-American Tiny Gallon had received impermissible benefits and that Capel's assistant, Oronde Taliaferro, had resigned.

Duke associate head coach Jeff Capel III has agreed to be the next head coach of Pittsburgh, according to four sources close the basketball programs at Duke and Pitt.

Capel has been the associate head coach of Duke since 2011.

Pittsburgh, which fired Stallings after two disastrous years that included an 0-18 record in ACC play this season, reportedly extended an offer to Rhode Island Coach Dan Hurley, who instead took the top job at CT.

Capel is the 16th head coach in program history and takes over a team that went 8-24 overall and 0-18 in the ACC a year ago. At Duke, Capel was a four-year starter.

However, Twitterati hailed South Africa for bowling well and especially Morkel who reached a milestone of 300 Test wickets . Aiden Markram's 84 put South Africa into a position of dominance on day 3 at tea time of the third Test .

Capel is given credit for Duke's recent successful recruiting of "one and done" players, after Krzyzewski lamented the movement and dismissed the idea of having players like that at the school. "His insight, passion for the game, relationships with our players, and most importantly, his friendship have meant the world to me and my family".

Capel has filled in for Krzyzewski at least once in each of the past three years, including a seven-game stint during the 2016-17 season while the Hall of Famer had surgery to have a fragment of a herniated disk removed from his back. In seven seasons at Duke, he has helped guide the Blue Devils to a 200-55 (.784) record, seven NCAA Tournament appearances, the 2017 ACC Tournament championship and the 2015 National Championship.

The Oklahoma Sooners took on Capel next in the 06-07 season. Capel previously served as head coach at VCU and Oklahoma, taking both schools to the NCAA tournament during his tenure. Capel was not implicated in the NCAA's findings. The Blue Devils have landed the No. 1 class in the country in four of the past five seasons, with Capel the top recruiter on staff.

The Panthers reached the NCAAs 11 times in 13 seasons under Dixon.
