Penn State Coach Patrick Chambers Suspended One Game for Shoving Player

USA Today

Penn State basketball coach Patrick Chambers has been suspended by the school for one game for shoving a player during Thursday night's game against Michigan, the school announced in a press release Friday. 

"Coach Chambers and I have spoken about what occurred during the Michigan game and he is very remorseful," Penn State athletics director Sandy Barbour said about the incident that saw Chambers reach out and appear to push freshman guard Myles Dread in the chest during a timeout in the first half of the Nittany Lions' loss to the Wolverines. 

"His actions were unacceptable, which he recognized, and he apologized to Myles Dread last night and his family today," Barbour wrote. "His actions do not reflect the values of Penn State and the expectations we set for our programs and must not occur again." 

Chambers for his part addressed the incident postgame — unprompted — and apologized to Dread publicly. 

The eighth-year Penn State coach offered up another public apology to Dread in Friday's statement.
