Tommy Amaker said at the end of the day that his heart was at Harvard.
Harvard announced early Saturday evening that its head coach will stay on at the school. Amaker’s name had recently been floated for the Boston College job.
“After thoughtful deliberation, I continue to realize my heart is at Harvard,” Amaker stated. “To teach, lead and serve at this amazing institution, and in this special community, is truly meaningful to me.”
“Tommy is a great leader, a great coach and a great educator,” said Bob Scalise, Harvard’s Nichols Family Director of Athletics. “He is an inspiration to many in the Harvard community. We are excited he will continue to lead our men’s basketball program.”
Harvard’s made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and won twice in the Round of 64, including this year’s victory over No. 5 Cincinnati.
