"I am happy for both Dave and Dylan at this time of transition for our campus basketball team," said PSU Athletic Director Ken Nellis.  "Dave has created an environment and attitude of excellence on campus and in the community towards academics and basketball.  We can't thank Dave enough for the time, energy, and commitment to his players over the past eight seasons; I will miss having him on the sidelines next season."

On turning the reigns over to Dylan Howard Bennett stated, "I've been fortunate to have had the pleasure of coaching Coach Howard for three years and having him as part of my coaching staff for another six years.  Through that time, I have seen Dylan grow and mature into a remarkable basketball coach and leader.  He has shown exceptional knowledge of the game, the ability to recruit outstanding student-athletes, and genuine devotion to the success of student-athletes on and off the court. Dylan will be an excellent head coach, and the Penn State DuBois Basketball Program is in great hands going forward."

Nellis commented on Dylan Howard taking over the basketball program, saying, "Dylan has the same philosophy as Coach Bennett towards academics being priority one.  The style of play should be similar since they have worked together for many years and have been successful.  I am pleased Dylan has accepted the position and do expect the basketball team to continue to do very well in the PSUAC conference and USCAA tournament."

Coach Howard earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management/Marketing from Penn State DuBois in 2008. He is employed by Foradora Insurance in DuBois as an insurance producer.
