PITTSBURGH (AP) — Well into the first week of training camp under a new coach, Pitt wide receiver Devin Street likes what he sees.
Street, a junior who will be counted on heavily this season as the Panthers develop a chemistry under coach Paul Chryst, had 53 catches for 754 yards and two touchdowns last season. But he wants more this season, as Pitt closes out its run in the Big East.
"Football is back to being fun now. These guys make it fun, but at the same time we know what the goal is and know what we have to do," Street said. "We're all here because we love the game. They understand that and their job is to teach us and that's what they are doing."
Chryst, who replaced Todd Graham as Pitt's coach, opened camp on Monday and has drawn rave reviews from the players. And anyone who has been around the game knows that's a rare feeling in the first week of any training camp.
"He's so personable. I can talk to him about anything. He has a great mind. He's a genius," Street said.
