Penn State Board of Trustees’ Subcommittee on Compensation Schedules Meeting for 4 p.m. Wednesday

The Penn State Board of Trustees’ Subcommittee on Compensation has scheduled a meeting for 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, in case a new basketball coach’s contract has been submitted for the BOT’s approval by then.

There have also been meetings scheduled for Thursday, March 30, at 5:30, and Friday, March 31, at 3, in case a submission doesn’t happen before Wednesday but does happen later this week.

Penn State, of course, is looking for a coach to succeed Micah Shrewsberry, who became Notre Dame’s headman last week.

The feeling right now is that VCU head coach Mike Rhoades is the front runner, as long as he wants to come to Penn State. David Jones of PennLive and the Harrisburg-Patriot News, among others, have reported that Rhoades has been offered.

Penn State associate head coach Adam Fisher js another option. Fisher was Shrewsberry’s right-hand man and also worked for coaches such as Miami’s Jim Larranaga and Villanova’s Jay Wright.

Fisher is also reportedly being strongly considered for the Temple job.

Penn State was also reported to be interested in Texas interim coach Rodney Terry. But Terry became the full-time head coach earlier this week after leading the team to the Elite 8, where it fell to Larranaga and Miami.

These scheduled meetings don’t necessarily mean that Penn State has hired a coach of that it will this week. But it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on.

Even without a hiring, it’s been an eventful two days for Penn State men’s basketball, and not for positive reasons. On Monday, Evan Mahaffey, part of Penn State’s celebrated ‘22 recruiting class that was the highest-rated in school history, entered the transfer portal. The next day, ‘23 signee Logan Imes requested to be released from his national letter of intent, joining four-star Carey Booth. The only one of the three ‘23 signees to not request a release so far is Braeden Shrewsberry, Micah’s son.
