Pat Chambers, an assistant coach at Villanova, has agreed to become the next coach at Boston University, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

The school is planning a press conference to announce the move later this week.

The longest tenured member of Jay Wright's staff, Chambers went to Villanova in 2004 as director of basketball operations and then became an assistant coach in '05 before being named association head coach last fall.

He will succeed Dennis Wolff, who was fired after compiling a 247-197 record in 15 seasons, making him the winningest coach in Terriers history.
