Sources: Marshall chooses Pitt's Herrion

Pittsburgh associate head coach Tom Herrion has been hired at Marshall.

Sources told FOXSports.com that Herrion will be introduced at a news conference on Saturday.

Herrion, 42, has spent the past three years working for Jamie Dixon at Pittsburgh after being let go after a four-year stint at the College of Charleston in which he averaged 20 wins per season.

Herrion takes over a program that won 23 games last season under Donnie Jones, who left to go to fellow Conference USA school Central Florida.

Herrion was 80-38 in his career at Charleston and was also an assistant at Virginia from 1998-2002 and Providence from 1994-98.
