Jon Baldwin, Dion Lewis to enter draft
Even as the University of Pittsburgh hired a new football coach Monday, it lost three of its best players to the NFL.
2011 NFL Draft
The 6-foot-5 Baldwin is a two-time all-Big East player who made 53 catches for 822 yards and five touchdowns this season. Lewis ran for a Pitt freshman record 1,799 yards last season and was chosen as a second-team All-American, but he had a major falloff to 1,061 yards this season.
Hynoski is leaving in part because he believed Pitt's next coach will do away with the fullback role.
Pitt announced they had hired Tulsa coach Todd Graham late Monday night.
