Head coach Jerome Allen and Penn to part ways after the season
Head coach Jerome Allen will be let go by Penn when the season comes to an end, a source told NBCSports.com.
Allen, a graduate of Penn, has been the head coach since December of 2009. He was named the interim coach after Glen Miller was fired in the middle of the 2009-2010 season. He lead the Quakers to the CBI in 2012, finishing 11-3 in the Ivy, good for second in the league.
But Allen has not been able to replicate that success. He’s failed to reach double-figures in wins the last three seasons, and is just 8-18 overall and 3-9 in the Ivy with two games left in the regular season.
Allen is 64-103 overall and 37-45 overall in the Ivy in his tenure.
As a player, Allen was a two-time Ivy League Player of the Year. He was a second round pick in the 1995 NBA Draft.
