Ex-Pitt coach Harris hired at D-II school

Former University of Pittsburgh coach Walt Harris was introduced as the new offensive coordinator at California (Pa.) on Monday.

Harris spent eight years leading the Panthers but left with a 52-44 record to take over at Stanford following the 2004 season. Harris served as an assistant with Akron last year.

Harris, 63, will replace Mike T. Jacobs, who stepped away due to health concerns.

The Vulcans, a Division II power, finished the 2009 season with an 11-4 record after losing in the national semifinals.
