Pitt alum Sean Gilbert hired by DII Livingstone as head coach

Former Pitt defensive lineman Sean Gilbert was hired as the head coach of the Livingstone College football program on Thursday. Livingstone is a historically black college in Salisbury, North Carolina, that competes at the Division II level, and Gilbert was hired after serving as an assistant at South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Gilbert's predecessor, Daryl Williams, was not retained after compiling a 22-46 record over the past seven seasons. That decision was made public earlier this month, and the remainder of Williams' staff was dismissed on Wednesday, the day before the Gilbert hire was announced by the school.
