Hat tip to VUHoops.com for reporting this, first:
Seth Davis of Sports Illustrated - he of the CBS Road to the Final Four Studio Show - has reported that Villanova associate head coach Pat Chambers will be named the new head coach at Boston University...
The coaching carousel never stops come April, and this word comes less than 24 hours after Villanova's incredible run to the Final Four ended in a half-empty Ford Field in Detroit, close to midnight...
According to the SI site:
My two cents-
The longest tenured member of Jay Wright's staff, Chambers went to Villanova in 2004 as director of basketball operations and then became an assistant coach in '05 before being named association head coach last fall.
He will succeed Dennis Wolff, who was fired after compiling a 247-197 record in 15 seasons, making him the winningest coach in Terriers history.
I have to say that it's a lot of pressure on the incoming coach, when the winningest coach in school history gets fired... Of course, I'll have more on the Chambers departure later this week...
