Pitt coach Jeff Capel, who has been a part of three teams that played in the NCAA Tournament, will be a guest studio analyst for CBS Sports and Turner Sports during their coverage of the tournament’s first-round games Thursday and Friday.

He will join the Atlanta studio team of host Casey Stern and analysts Brendan Haywood, Candace Parker and Seth Davis.

If he needs advise on how to work in front of the camera, he can consult his brother, Jason, a Pitt assistant who previously worked for ESPN.

Capel has compiled a record of 176-129 in 10 seasons as head coach at VCU, Oklahoma and Pitt. In his first season with the Panthers, he led the team to a 14-19 record this year, with victories against four teams that are in the tournament — Saint Louis, Colgate, Louisville and Florida State.

He has made a total of three tournament appearances himself with VCU, Oklahoma and Duke. He led the Sooners to the Elite Eight in 2008. He also was a four-year starting guard at Duke and played in the 1994 national championship game for the Blue Devils.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
