Source: Chambers likely to be PSU's next coach

Posted on: June 3, 2011 2:47 pm
Duquesne's Ron Everhart and Milwaukee's Rob Jeter have both publicly withdrawn their names from consideration for the Penn State job, meaning Boston University's Pat Chambers will, barring a surprise, be introduced soon as the Nittany Lions' next head coach.

Everhart, Jeter and Chambers are the only three men who interviewed.

A source told that all three were told they were the only coaches under consideration. A separate source confirmed that Chambers has been offered the job, and that he'll likely accept at some point Friday. Chambers is a Pennsylvania native who spent the past two seasons as the head coach at BU. Before that, he assisted Jay Wright at Villanova for five seasons.

Chambers would be replacing Ed DeChellis.

DeChellis left Penn State last month to take over at Navy.

Chambers has gotten the Terriers into the NCAA Tournament two of the last three seasons. That should be significantly tougher than it will be at PSU.

I'm not sure there is a tougher BCS job in the country for basketball. Penn State has not been to the NCAA Tournament very many times in its history, especially since Joe Paterno arrived on campus.  I am not sure how tough a decision this was for Pat Chambers because Penn State is a better job than Boston University.  If he gets to the NCAA Tournament, he has done a good job.
