PITTSBURGH (AP) Jeff Capel's firing at Oklahoma seven years ago left him shaken. He found solace, security and peace as an assistant at Duke, soaking up everything coach, mentor and friend Mike Krzyzewski offered, no matter how mundane.
Over time, jobs would occasionally pop up. Capel would take a look but never really came close to leaving.
Then Capel spent three hours with Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke and chancellor Patrick Gallagher on Monday. And all the boxes were checked.
