Curley Gives DeChellis Another Vote Of Confidence

Penn State men's basketball coach Ed DeChellis earned another vote of confidence from athletic director Tim Curley, says Altoona Mirror reporter Cory Giger in a story that was released on Monday. After a 19-15 season which included the Nittany Lions' first NCAA Tournament appearance in a decade and DeChellis's first appearance since arriving in Happy Valley eight years ago, Curley said that the future of the program is bright and that he is "supportive of everything he [DeChellis] is doing." Curley offered a similar statement last April, a month after the 2009-2010 team, who had very lofty expectations after winning the NIT Championship the year before, went 11-20, putting them in the cellar of the Big Ten.
