On this episode of Podward State, hosts Samuel Brungo and Matthew Paolizzi are joined by Onward State sports editor William Hutchinson Pegler, III to chat about the recent activity for Penn State Men's Basketball.
Will first breaks down the recent head coaching hire of Micah Shrewsberry, a former associate coach from Purdue. He speculates what this could mean for the program moving forward.
Next, Will discusses the transfer portal and the half-dozen players that have entered this past week. He reassures us that this does not mean that they are definitively leaving, and that Penn State hoops is not going up in flames.
Finally, we chat about potential landing spots for former head coaches Patrick Chambers and Jim Ferry. Both have impressive resumes and are being discussed as potential candidates for coaching vacancies.
