Update: Jim Ferry has been named interim head coach at Penn State.

Pat Chambers has resigned as Penn State men's basketball head coach.

The move comes as a massive surprise as the Nittany Lions are coming off their best season in Chambers' tenure.

Chambers, one of the school's longest-tenured head coaches, went 148-150 in nine seasons at Penn State, with the highlight being an NIT Title in 2018. His team would have made it to the NCAA Tournament this season for the first time in his tenure if not for the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is a developing story and we will update this post as more information becomes available.
