Unless a sudden dark horse comes out of the woodwork or the man in question turns down an offer, it looks like Pat Chambers is the last one standing for the Penn State job. According to TMJ4 (NBC in Milwaukee) sports anchor Lance Allen, Rob Jeter will be staying with the Panthers.
Jeter, along with Boston coach Pat Chambers and Duquesne's Ron Everhart all interviewed for the position with the Nittany Lions on Tuesday. Everhart withdrew his name from consideration yesterday, leaving just two names in the running. Reports surfaced yesterday that Chambers was going to be named the new head coach, but were later ruled as premature, despite the heavy indications the Terriers coach was on the move.
Now in light of this reported decision by Jeter, it appears more certain than ever that Chambers will be that new coach at Penn State while BU will have to begin the search for his replacement.
Jeter just completed his sixth season as head coach at Milwaukee where he has compiled a record of 101-89, with an NCAA Tournament and NIT appearance as well.
