Penn State Nittany Lions head college basketball coach Patrick Chambers has been suspended by the school for pushing freshman Myles Dread during a game against the Michigan Wolverines.
“Coach Chambers and I have spoken about what occurred during the Michigan game, and he is very remorseful,” athletic director Sandy Barbour said Friday in a statement. “His actions were unacceptable, which he recognized, and he apologized to Myles Dread last night and his family today. His actions do not reflect the values of Penn State and the expectations we set for our programs and must not occur again. Pat and I agree his actions were unacceptable, and he will be suspended for Sunday night’s game vs. Wisconsin.”

After the game, Patrick Chambers attempted to explain how much he cares for Myles Dread, while saying he shouldn’t have shoved him and that he hoped to be better about how he handles a situation like that in the future.
“I apologized to Myles after the game, and I have spoken with his family,” Patrick Chambers said in the release. “My actions were inappropriate; that’s not what Penn State stands for or what I stand for. I told Myles I was sorry that it happened. Sandy and I have spoken and agreed there are some things I need to address. I’ve assured her this won’t happen again and understand my actions last night come with consequences.”
Penn State has yet to win a game in the Big Ten Conference.
