Daly and Urgo Named Associate Head Coaches

Penn State basketball is shaking up some internal personnel, with assistant coaches Brian Daly and Keith Urgo both promoted to the associate head coach title yesterday.

Before they were hired at Penn State in June 2011, both Daly and Urgo worked with Pat Chambers at his previous positions. Urgo, from the D.C. area, worked with him at Villanova when they reached the Sweet Sixteen in 2008 and the Final Four in 2009. Daly, a Philly native, was on the staff at Boston University, which had two 21-game winning seasons before Chambers was hired at Penn State. For his third season at the helm, Chambers decided to move things around and move them up to Associate Head Coaches. In addition to recruiting, they’ll also be in charge of daily operations and scouting reports.

With Eugene Burroughs moving to Marist and Adam Fisher making his way down to Miami, the team still has two positions to fill. According to the Patriot News’ David Jones, Chambers is looking to hire someone with ties to junior colleges. This would bode well for potential JUCO transfers, considering there are still two scholarships open after Jermaine Marshall decided to forgo his senior season.
