Lamar Stevens, Jamari Wheeler continue to show support for former coach Chambers

It became abundantly clear on media day last week that some current members of the Penn State basketball team were not happy about how things played out with coach Patrick Chambers, who resigned Oct. 21.

The players expressed their disappointment that day, the first time they had spoken publicly since Chambers resigned.

Monday, current player Jamari Wheeler and former star player Lamar Stevens continued to show their support for Chambers on Twitter.

Wheeler started it with this post showing a conversation he was having with Chambers.

Stevens responded to the post with this tweet of his own:

In the video below from last week’s media day, Wheeler talks about how much he misses Chambers and how he’s still confused about what happened. As he’s talking about what happened the day he found out, Wheeler is cut off by a PSU communications staffer.

Myles Dread then said he’s “not at peace” with what happened to Chambers.
