Pittsburgh (KDKA)- One of the biggest names in college basketball is suggesting Penn State hire legendary head coach Bobby Knight.
Penn State is in the market for a men’s basketball coach after Ed DeChellis surprisingly left for the Naval Academy.
It’s not often you see a coach leave a Big 10 school for a job in the Patriot League. To top if off, DeChellis took a pay cut of over $200,000.
That just tells you the current state of Penn State basketball.
Hall of Fame ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale has a suggestion for fixing it.
Hire Hall of Fame coach Bobby Knight.
Here’s what Vitale tweeted last night:
“Ed DeChellis leaving PSU is not big hoops news as the job is soooo tough – roundball game just something to do until football!”
“Come on Penn St put 2 icons together Wow Joe Pa & Robert Montgomery Knight! He can create some Hoops interest! Hire energetic young staff!”
“PENN ST HIRE BOB KNIGHT NOW!”
Considering Penn State was only paying DeChellis $600,000, this is just Vitale trying to get his good friend a job.
I’d admit a lot more people would follow Penn State basketball.
