Former Penn State star and the basketball program’s all-time leading scorer Talor Battle will be returning to State College. Nittany Lions head coach Patrick Chambers announced that Battle will be an assistant coach.

“Talor embodies everything it means to be a Nittany Lion and his work ethic, winning mentality and attitude align with our vision for success,” Chambers said in a statement. “His experiences at Penn State as a leader, as a competitor in the B1G and as part of this community will be invaluable for our current and future student-athletes.”

In his four seasons with Penn State, Battle totaled 2,213 career points, becoming the school’s all-time leader. He also finished his career with 625 rebounds, 517 assists and 145 steals. Battle started 131 career games with the Nittany Lions and played 4,799 career minutes, a B1G record.

Battle played basketball professionally overseas from 2011 through 2018.
