According to a story posted overnight by the Associated Press, Duquesne head coach Ron Everhart has withdrawn his name from consideration for the open job at Penn State.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.

Everhart withdraws from Penn State search

Ben Howland and Jamie Dixon have built our program from next to nothing. Win a Big Ten championship or two before you say Penn Stink will pull even with the beasts of the big east. Pitt has had a football team that wouldve beaten Penn Stink the last 3 years, but your old hag of a coach is too afraid to play. Grats JoePa on still being alive, being able to control your bowels, and ruining one of the best college sports rivalries.

Spoken like a true Pitt fan.  You are probably scared because PSU > Pitt in virtually every sport but basketball.  With a strong hire, PSU may eventually pull even with Pitt on the BB court Surprised.  Then what will you have to complain about?  Poor guy.  Get your shots in while you can Pitter.

Who cares? Let's talk about a real basketball program. Not this JOKE who snuck into the tourney last year undeservingly.
