PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s always a whirlwind when a college basketball coach changes schools for a new opportunity. But you have to imagine the transition is a little easier for Ira Bowman. That’s because coming to the University of Pennsylvania as a new men’s assistant is a homecoming and a reunion.
Bowman was a star player for Penn in the mid-90′s after transferring in from Providence, and one of his teammates with the Quakers was current Penn head coach Jerome Allen.
