According to a tweet this morning by Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, Penn State will name Purdue associate head coach Micah Shrewsberry as their new head basketball coach.
Shrewsberry has been on Matt Painter’s staff for the past two seasons, and was an assistant with the Boston Celtics from 2013-19. He also spent 2011-13 at Purdue before making the jump to the NBA. The Indiana native also worked for Brad Stevens at Butler, and spent two seasons as the head coach at Indiana South Bend.
He will replace interim head coach Jim Ferry, who led the Nittany Lions to an 11-14 (7-12 Big Ten) record this past season.
More on this when it becomes official.
