Pat Chambers, the Penn State Nittany Lions longtime men’s basketball coach, resigned on Wednesday after a probe by the Penn State in allegations of unfitting conduct by him.
Penn State, in a statement, said that new allegations came to the fore post the website The Undefeated had reported in the month of July that College basketball star Rasir Bolton, who was transferred to Iowa State from Penn State in 2019, said he made the decision of leaving Nittany Lions as Chambers mad some reference to one noose around the neck region of Bolton.
The new accusations against Chambers came briefly after the article of The Undefeated and one review had been carried out by the Affirmative Action and Athletics office of Penn State, said Penn State through a statement.
Meanwhile, Chambers in his statement said that he decided to go on a break in order to re-set as well as chart his path forward.
Sandy Barbour, athletic director said accepting resignation of Chambers seems the right thing to do for Penn State, the school’s student-athletes and programs.
Barbour said that the school has received the probe results a few weeks ago and that new allegation wasn’t known to Penn State earlier and was irrelevant to Bolton’s incident which he narrated to The Undefeated.
