According to a story posted overnight by the Associated Press, Duquesne head coach Ron Everhart has withdrawn his name from consideration for the open job at Penn State.
"There's just a lot of good things going on here at Duquesne, and it's just a good time for us," Everhart said. "It's become a real special place, and this is just the right thing to do."
Everhart, 49, has the Dukes in the thick of the hunt in the tough A-10 every season of late, and has three years remaining on his contract, which reportedly pays him $400,000 per season.
Attention will now turn to Milwaukee's Rob Jeter and Boston University head coach Pat Chambers, who have long been mentioned in the next tier of candidates just below Everhart.
