Tommy Amaker will remain at Harvard, the school announced Saturday. His name had been mentioned as a possible replacement for Steve Donahue at Boston College, but Saturday’s announcement closes that door.

“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.”

Amaker has led Harvard to three straight NCAA tournaments and back-to-back trips to the round of 32. This year, the 12th-seeded Crimson upset Cincinnati in the round of 64 before falling to Michigan State.

“Tommy is a great leader, a great coach and a great educator,” said Harvard athletic director Bob Scalise. “He is an inspiration to many in the Harvard community. We are excited he will continue to lead our men’s basketball program.”
