Penn State coach Pat Chambers resigns after alleged noose comment

Penn State men’s basketball coach Pat Chambers resigned on Wednesday following an investigation into “new allegations of inappropriate conduct,” the school announced.

Chambers had previously been in hot water after Rasir Bolton, who transferred from Penn State to Iowa State during Chambers’ tenure, alleged that the coach made an inappropriate reference to a noose with him.

Per Penn State, new allegations against Chambers surfaced after Bolton spoke to The Undefeated about the incident, and a review was conducted by its Affirmative Action and Athletics Integrity offices. It does not specify what those allegations were, though PennLive’s David Jones reports that investigators spoke to many players and coaches about Chambers’ treatment of them as well as possible recruiting irregularities.

Penn State assistant coach Jim Ferry will serve as interim head coach for the 2020-21 season.
