Chambers’ comment was out of character
I was stunned to read in the Mirror that Penn State basketball coach Patrick Chambers had resigned his position for a comment he made in January 2019 to Rasir Bolton, who is currently a student at Iowa State University.
I am sure it was a shock wave heard around the world of college basketball and a very difficult decision made by PSU Athletic Director Sandy Barbour.
Chambers was well liked by his peers.
I have always been an admirer of him for his integrity.
The comment he made to Bolton was out of character for him.
Chambers should have picked his words more carefully, but he let his emotions get carried away.
Chambers will remember and take his comments to his grave with him. I don’t know if he will bounce back and find another coaching position in the future.
Time will tell.
