Brian Daly to complete Chambers' Penn State staff

By Craig Meyer/DFP Staff

Having been passed over for the program's head coaching position, Boston University men's basketball associate head coach Brian Daly has resigned and will take a job as an assistant coach under Patrick Chambers at Penn State University, as confirmed in a press release from the Penn State athletic department today.

Daly was the only remaining member of Chambers' staff still at BU, so his departure will allow new BU head coach Joe Jones to compose an entirely new coaching staff.

Jones was introduced as the Terriers' head coach in a press conference Monday.

Daly joins former BU assistant Ross Condon and former director of basketball operations Adam Fisher at Penn State, both of whom left the BU program over the last week. Eugene Burroughs and Keith Urgo are the other two assistants on Chambers' first Nittany Lions staff.

"I am very excited for this opportunity and would like to thank Coach Chambers for welcoming me to the Penn State family," Daly said in a statement.

Daly reportedly interviewed for the head coaching position at BU on June 22, the same day that news broke of Jones' hire. Before his two years with the BU program, Daly was the head coach for the Monsignor Bonner High School boys' basketball team in Drexel Hill, Pa.
