Penn State basketball: Nittany Lions promote Condon to assistant coach

Ross Condon has been promoted to assistant coach for the Penn State men’s basketball team, the program announced Tuesday.

Condon was Penn State’s director of operations for the last four seasons. He replaces Brian Daly, who left the program earlier this month to spend more time with his family. The program will immediately begin a search for a director of operations, according to a press release.

“Ross Condon has been an integral part of my staff for the last six years and I look forward to having him on the bench as an assistant coach,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said in the release. “His knowledge and understanding of the game will be an asset to the players and this program. Ross is loyal, trustworthy and committed to the success of Penn State basketball.”

Condon was an assistant coach for two seasons on Chambers’ staff at Boston University. He also played at Villanova from 2003-07, spending his final three seasons under Chambers, who was then an assistant coach for the Wildcats.

Condon also served as the director of basketball operations at Radford University for two years before joining Chambers’ staff at Boston.

As an assistant for Penn State, Condon will play a role in player development, scouting, recruiting and non-conference scheduling.

“I want to thank coach Chambers for this opportunity,” Condon said. “I am excited to continue working with this great staff and the Penn State community.”
