RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Virginia Commonwealth University’s men’s basketball coach Mike Rhoades has officially left the team and is headed to Penn State University.
“It was a dream come true to coach with so many special, talented and passionate layers and coaches,” Rhoades said.
On Wednesday afternoon, the men’s basketball program at Penn State confirmed that Rhoades would be the next head coach there.
“We are excited to welcome Mike Rhoades as our head men’s basketball coach,” said PSU’s Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft. “He is a veteran head coach who is a proven winner at multiple levels.”
