FVSU President Larry E. Rivers introduced Donald Pittman during a recent press conference at the construction site of the new Wildcat Stadium.
“It is indeed a pleasure to introduce the new head coach of the Fort Valley State University Wildcats,” Rivers said. “The FVSU family welcomes Mr. Donald Pittman.”
Pittman is the former offensive coordinator of the Albany State University Golden Rams, a formidable Wildcats’ rival. “We will support Coach Pittman in continuing to move this team forward based on the solid foundation of our previous coach, Deondri Clark. We will make sure, with his assistance, that we are not only training good athletes. We want them to graduate as well as play good football.”
Pittman – wearing a white Wildcats’ ball cap – said he was ready for the challenges ahead.
“God has blessed me through all of my years of coaching. I feel that my best coaching is ahead of me and I’m going to make sure that all Wildcat fans are behind me. I waited over 30 years for this opportunity and I’m ready to go to work to show the nation what we can do.” 
Pittman said he hopes to coach his new football team to a national championship.
Sean Stanley, interim director of athletics, said that Pittman possesses one of the most brilliant offensive minds in the country. “A lot of time and effort went into the selection of the next FVSU coach. President Rivers charged us to be honest and forthright in our dealings.”
