STATE COLLEGE, PA — This afternoon, Penn State fans received some awful news: former head coach Micah Shrewsberry will be leaving the program in favor of the Notre Dame head coaching job. Soon after the announcement was made, many former Penn State basketball players from the 2022-23 team made public calls for the Nittany Lions to hire associate head coach Adam Fisher.

Former Penn State basketball stars call for Adam Fisher to take over as head coach

In 2006, current Nittany Lion basketball associate head coach Adam Fisher graduated from Penn State University. Now, over 15 years after the fact, Fisher could be facing a massive test: keeping Penn State basketball afloat. After Micah Shrewsberry moved on to Notre Dame on Wednesday afternoon, many standout players from Penn State’s incredible 2022-23 squad called for Adam Fisher to take over as head coach in 2023-24.

In 2021, Adam Fisher was brought on as an assistant to Micah Shrewsberry during his first season at the helm. Since coming back to State College, Fisher has helped Penn State basketball bring in some massive recruits, and assisted the team in winning 23 games — including an NCAA tournament game — in 2022-23.

Four of the top Penn State players on last season’s squad made their feelings on Adam Fisher public this evening; all of them called for Fisher to be named the program’s next head basketball coach.

Before arriving at Penn State, Fisher served as an assistant for the Miami Hurricanes (ACC) where he helped the Canes appear in the NCAA tournament four times in a row.
