- Dan Earl (Assistant Coach, Penn State University)
"Hi Tony, Congratulations on "Coach of the Year" and a great season! It's good to see someone who cares, works hard, and has passion for what he does be successful."

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - After three knee surgeries, Dan Earl decided last Christmas that his basketball-playing days were over.His coaching days, though, are just beginning.
Earl is the newest assistant basketball coach at Penn State, the school he helped lead to an NCAA tournament appearance in 1996 as a vocal, heady point guard.
He missed most of the next two seasons with injuries before finishing his last year of eligibility in 1999.Then, playing for a professional team in Germany last May, Earl hurt his an ankle and knee.He went through rehab before finally deciding over the holidays to end his playing career.
'It got tiring doing it over and over again,' Earl said Wednesday in his new office, two days after he was hired.Wearing a crisp, new white Penn State polo shirt, he sat back in the chair of his new office, and added, 'I saw the light on in my head.'
So Earl decided to pursue coaching, 'something I always I knew I wanted to get into in the back of my mind,' he said.
Earl says he knows there's a tough rebuilding road ahead.
But Earl is optimistic that the school is 'on the right track' and that his personal experience with on-court adversity might help the current crop of players.
Penn State had 13 wins in Earl's first season in 1994 before rebounding to win 21 in each of the next two years.The final full year that Earl played, Penn State was back down to 13 wins.
'It's fair to say we have to do better,' Earl said. 'If we're going to make a step up, things are in place now.'
Earl, of Medford Lakes, N.J., ranks second at Penn State with 574 career assists.While he'll miss playing ball, Earl says he is at peace with his decision.

Former Penn State basketball point guard Dan Earl was a surprise visitor to Happy Valley in early January.Earl had been playing professional basketball in Poland, but left his team over the holidays.
"It was not a good situation from a basketball standpoint and not a very organized team," Earl said."I started getting a bad feeling when they started messing around with my situation financially, so I decided to leave the team."
Despite a temporary setback in Poland, Earl is not ready to give up on basketball.
"I had a great time last year playing with (former Penn State teammate) Pete Lisicky in Germany," Earl said."I am going to go back there and work out with them and see if any spots might open up on their team.I would like to keep playing as long as I can."
Earl's career at Penn State will always be remembered fondly by Nittany Lion fans.In some ways he was one of the most important recruits in Penn State history.Recruited by Bruce Parkhill from Medford Lakes, N.J., Earl ranks 12th in school history in scoring, second in assists and his single-season assist total of 181 in 1995 also is a school record.
"I wanted to come to Penn State to play in the Big Ten," recalls Earl."At the time, every school in the league had big time players: Michigan had the Fab Five, Michigan State had Shawn Respert, Minnesota had Voshon Leonard and Purdue had Glenn Robinson.I loved playing in the league.I know that it has been tough to recruit eastern players lately, but I think coach (Ed) DeChellis will change a lot of that."
Don't be surprised to see Earl in a coaching box when he finishes playing overseas.
