Chambers has a lifetime coaching record of 42-48 in two seasons, both of which he spent at Boston University. In his debut season in 2009-10, Chambers guided the Terriers to a 21-14 record (11-5 America East).

Last year, Chambers led BU to a 21-14 record (12-4 America East) and a second place finish in the conference, as well as an NCAA Tournament berth. BU was eliminated by No. 1 seed Kansas in the first round.

Chambers played college basketball at Philadelphia University, and is good friends with Boston College men's basketball coach Steve Donahue, who he called for advice prior to BU's match-up with Kansas.

If Chambers is hired by Penn State, he would make a return to the Boston during the regular season next year, as the Nittany Lions are scheduled to face Boston College in the annual Big Ten-ACC Challenge at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, MA.
