Harvard University is working on a multiyear extension for men's basketball coach Tommy Amaker, the school said Friday afternoon.
Amaker, who previously was at Seton Hall and Michigan before landing at Harvard in 2007, led the Crimson to their highest victory total in school history this season (21) and earned Harvard its first postseason tournament berth (CIT) since 1946. There has been some speculation he could become a candidate for the coaching vacancy at Boston College.
"There have been some flattering reports of opportunities at other fine institutions but my heart is at Harvard," Amaker said, according to the school.
A source told the Boston Herald that BC had not yet contacted Harvard for permission to speak with Amaker.
