Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

BC's "Plan A" is out. On to Plan C, I guess.

Boston College's search for its next men's basketball coach will not stop with Harvard's Tommy Amaker, which no longer makes him a favorite for the position. The seven-year Crimson coach will remain on the other side of the river, per a school release:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Harvard Athletics has announced that men's basketball head coach Tommy Amaker will remain with the program.

"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."
