Iowa State guard Rasir Bolton said he decided to leave Penn State last spring because of a comment by coach Pat Chambers, who said the player had a noose around his neck.

Bolton, who is Black, disclosed the reason for his departure Monday in a tweet he titled "a noose around my neck."

Chambers, who is white, tweeted an apology the same day.
