Amaker staying at Harvard

Tommy Amaker plans to stay at Harvard, he told ESPN's Andy Katz Thursday.

Amaker's name surfaced Wednesday as a candidate for the vacant LSU job in various reports. Amaker is a former Duke player and assistant coach and is connected to LSU through athletic director Joe Alleva, who held the same position at Duke before coming to LSU.

Amaker has a 268-194 record in 15 years as a head coach at Seton Hall, Michigan and Harvard. He led the Crimson to an NCAA tournament appearance this season and an NIT appearance in 2011. Harvard shared the Ivy League title in 2011 and won it outright in 2012.
