Tommy Amaker is going nowhere. 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 said in a statement. "To teach, lead and serve at this amazing institution, and in this special community, is truly meaningful to me."
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.
Amaker, who's previously had jobs at Seton Hall and Michigan, has won four straight Ivy League titles and has a 139-71 mark during his seven seasons in Cambridge. It's pretty remarkable, considering Harvard went more than six decades between NCAA Tournament appearances until Amaker showed up.
The school notes the Crimson became the first Ivy program to log five straight 20-win seasons since Pennsylvania between 1970-75.
