NSN TV: Analyzing the Patrick Chambers situation and why he had to go

Words matter.

Actions matter.

Especially when dealing with young people.

Patrick Chambers reportedly used the word “noose” when talking to former player Rasir Bolton.

That just can’t happen. For any reason.

He pushed Myles Dread.

That just can’t happen. For any reason.

We don’t know yet what other things may or may not have occurred with Chambers and other players. But he was investigated by Penn State, and his resignation Wednesday suggests that the school found his behavior unacceptable.

Will more information come out? Will Chambers ever get another head coaching job in college basketball?

Cory Giger of Nittany Sports Now and Alan Saunders of Pittsburgh Sports Now discuss the Chambers situation, and interim coach Jim Ferry, in this video.

    Great to see you again. I’ve got you bookmarked now so I’ll be watching. I’m an Altoona native and Penn State grad but I live a thousand miles away so I appreciate being able to keep on top of Penn State sports. You do a great job! Keep it up.
