The University of Pittsburgh supports 19 varsity teams all known as Pittsburgh Panthers. The football program has been around since 1890 and is currently coached by Dave Wannstedt for his fifth year so far and a winning record of thirty-five wins and twenty-six losses. They claim as many as nine national championships ranging from 1915, 1916, and 1918 under Glenn Warner, 1929, 1931, 1934, 1936, and 1937 with Jock Sutherland, and finally 1976 with Johnny Majors. Over their history, the Panthers have earned height undefeated season with only 1920 and 1937 coming close to losses with two ties and one tie respectively. Every other season had only wins from 1904, 1910, 1915, 1916, 1917, and 1976. Their only Heisman Trophy Alumnus is Tony Dorsett from 1976, but Pittsburgh Panther Students were often nominated for the award. John Sutherland, the team's coach in the thirties, holds the most substantial career at the college so far. Under his coaching, the team won multiple bowls, made more appearances, several of the team's national championship titles. He pulled of multiple undefeated seasons and gained five claimed national titles during his stay. His eventual resignation from the coaching position was directly related to administrative policy de-emphasizing athletics. After a continually dwindling recruitment pool, and inadequate funds and time to train new players, Sutherland resigned and the press erupted with controversy. Sutherland's teams were well known for being so dominant, that Notre Dame actually refused to play them, and following the resignation returned to play.
