Penn State could very well be on the verge of announcing Pat Chambers as it’s next basketball coach.

Jon Rothstein, of CBS Sports and MSG Network, kicked off the rumor storm last evening with an announcement that Penn State will likely name Chambers their next head coach of the basketball program.

David Jones of Pennlive added further fuel to the flame this afternoon reporting that Rob Jeter is no longer a candidate for the Penn State job.

As of midday Friday, Jeter not a factor in PSU search. If anyone notable other than Chambers and Flannery wants this job, don't know of him.

And with news of other frontrunners UW-Milwaukee’s Rob Jeter, Bucknell’s Pat Flannery and Duquesne’s Ron Everhart stepping out of the race, all sources seem to indicate that Tim Curley is set to announce Pat Chambers as Penn State’s next basketball coach.

Flightaware is also tracking a twinjet Cessna flight EJA654P out of Boston Logan International (KBOS) headed directly to University Park Airport (KUNV) scheduled to land in State College just after 4PM EST. Keep in mind there are no direct flights scheduled between Boston and State College without a layover in Philadelphia or Washington DC first.

An announcement this afternoon would be timed perfectly with the Coaches vs Cancer Golf Tournament, an annual gathering of the Penn State basketball family that kicked off earlier today. The 4PM EST arrival time for the Cessna twinjet, capacity 7-10 passengers, would be too late for it’s passenger to be a participant in the Golf Tournament, but just early enough for the Golf Reception and Awards Banquet scheduled this evening at Mt. Nittany Club in Beaver Stadium.

It looks like Pat Chambers is about to become Penn State’s 12th head basketball coach.

Update 2:16 P.M.:

According to Jeff Goodman, the job is Chambers’, as long as he wants it. Assuming he hasn’t been stringing Penn State along this whole time, the Nittany Lions have their guy. Let’s party.

Boston University coach Pat Chambers was offered the Penn State job earlier today - per sources.
