Post-Gazette: PSU hot shot: Ed DeChellis

The person most likely to have the greatest impact on Penn State’s fortunes this season:

Ed DeChellis admits, with a hint of resignation, that Penn State still isn’t the team he’d like it to be. Better than last year?

Certainly. But it still carries a little too much of its traditional image as a Big Ten pushover.

That’s why DeChellis’s job is so important. Within the next two or three years — through recruiting and gradual improvement — he’d like to turn the Lions’ into a more prominent basketball force. But it will take patience — from players, from the administration, even from fans.
