Patrick Chambers Might Be Next Men’s Basketball Head Coach (Update: Official!)

UPDATE (6/3): Boston University’s website confirms that Chambers will become Penn State basketball’s head coach.

It was initially reported last night that Boston University head coach Patrick Chambers will be named as the head coach of Penn State men’s basketball. The report first came via Twitter (of course) from Jon Rothstein of MSG and CBS Sports, who tweeted:

@JonRothstein: Sources indicate that Penn State will likely hire Boston University’s Pat Chambers as its next head basketball coach….

Then, shortly after, CBS Sports Senior College Basketball writer Jeff Goodman dismissed that report with tweets of his own.

@GoodmanCBS: Just got off phone with Ron Everhart – who said he is staying at Duquesne.

@GoodmanCBS: Boston University coach Pat Chambers has NOT been offered the Penn State job as of 8:24 ET – per sources. However, Chambers is in the mix.

Finally, David Jones, who appears to be ahead of everyone else when it comes to Penn State basketball news, silenced any lingering doubt for the time being with this tweet:

@djoneshoop: cbssports.com tweet that Pat Chambers is new PSU coach is news to Pat Chambers. Premature. Maybe at some point but not yet.

So, what did we learn? Well, it appears that Chambers is a serious candidate to become the next head coach and that Ron Everhart will not be coming to Penn State. According to ESPN.com’s Andy Katz, the only other candidate is Wisconsin-Milwaukee head coach Rob Jeter.

My two cents? It’s going to be Chambers, and I couldn’t be happier.
