Amaker staying at Harvard as coach

BY foxsports • April 12, 2011

After guiding Harvard to its first Ivy League championship and its winningest season in program history in 2010-11, Tommy Amaker isn't going anywhere.

Harvard announced on Tuesday that Amaker will remain the Crimson's head coach despite receiving interest from several other schools during the offseason.

"I am appreciative of and flattered by the interest shown in me by other fine universities, but I am proud and honored to represent Harvard,” Amaker said in a statement. "I look forward to continuing my efforts to teach, lead and serve at this great institution."

Amaker led Harvard to 23 wins this past season, including new team highs in conference victories (12) and home wins (14), while also clinching back-to-back postseason appearances for the first time in school history.

In four seasons at Harvard, Amaker's teams have defeated five BCS Conference teams, including three straight wins over rival Boston College.
