Pat Chambers Promotes Ross Condon To Assistant Coach

Penn State Head Coach Pat Chambers has found his right hand man in former Director of Basketball Operations Ross Condon, who will become Chambers’ new assistant coach, according to CBSSports. Condon replaces Brian Daly, who left the team in early May for personal reasons, stating, “I have been away from my family for the last few years and as my children are getting older and our oldest son is entering his senior year, I want to be in Philadelphia with them.”

Condon, a 2007 graduate of Villanova and former walk-on with the Wildcats, served as Penn State’s Director of Basketball Operations for four years after following Pat Chambers to Happy Valley from Boston University, where he was an assistant coach with the Terriers under Chambers. He was integral to Boston’s success in the 2010-11 season, in which the Terriers went 21-14 and won the America East Conference Championship, culminating in the school’s first NCAA Tournament berth since 2002. He helped guide the Terriers to the same record one year prior, where the school advanced to the semifinals of the CBI.

Condon seems to be a perfect replacement for the departed Daly, given his familiarity with Chambers and his prior coaching success at the Division-1 level. Condon will be an important piece of the puzzle going forward, as Chambers hopes to build a winner in Happy Valley.
