Penn State is meeting with Virginia Commonwealth head coach Mike Rhoades on Sunday, according to a report.

College basketball insider Jeff Goodman shared that news on Sunday afternoon. Rhoades led VCU to the NCAA Tournament this past season, but the Rams were ousted in the 1st round.

Rhoades just finished his 6th season with VCU. He replaced Will Wade back in 2017 after Wade left for the LSU job.

Penn State is coming off of one of its best seasons in recent memory. The Nittany Lions made the NCAA Tournament for just the 2nd time in the last 20 years. However, coach Micah Shrewsberry left for the Notre Dame job at the end of the season.

Still, Penn State’s basketball program has a lot of momentum and could be attractive for a coach looking to make a move into a top conference. The Atlantic-10 was a 1-bid league in 2022-23.

Rhoades has a record of 129-61 as VCU’s head coach. Prior to landing that job, he was Rice’s head coach for 3 seasons.
