The former Quakers star took over as the interim coach this past season after Glenn Miller was fired following a 0-7 start.
"Jerome's talents and accomplishments in life are noteworthy and familiar to the Penn community," Penn athletic director Steve Bilsky said in a statement. "What isn't as well known, until you spend time with him, is the humility that coincides with his pride. It is the combination of these qualities, plus his vision to return Penn to glory, that makes me so pleased to name him the John R. Rockwell Head Coach of Men's Basketball."
Allen was 6-15 since he took over and Penn was 5-9 in Ivy League play.
