UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -
"This was a very difficult decision for me and my family. It is very difficult to leave my alma mater, what we have built here and the relationships we have at Penn State. The United States Naval Academy and its mission of building leaders to serve our country and a higher calling really spoke to me personally and being part of that felt like something I needed to do at this point in my career."
"I am extremely proud of the program that we have been able to build here at Penn State and the fine young men who have played for us and graduated from the University. I'm very appreciative of the administration at Penn State and its willingness to invest in and grow the program, and I am very thankful to the tremendous Penn State students, alumni and fans that have supported Penn State basketball."
