Source: Penn St. offers job to BU's Chambers
Penn State has offered Boston University's Patrick Chambers the job as its next head coach, a source told ESPN.com. The two are negotiating a deal but nothing is concrete and Chambers has not yet accepted.
Chambers has been at BU for two seasons, and this year led the team to the America East title and an NCAA tournament berth.
Chambers is a logical hire for Penn State, thanks to his deep Philadelphia roots. A Philly native, he spent five seasons with Jay Wright at Villanova, moving up to be Wright's associate head coach before moving on to BU.
