After taking a day to meet University of Miami athletic officials and consider the situation, Tommy Amaker has decided to remain the men's basketball coach at Harvard.

Miami had placed Amaker atop its wish list as the replacement for Frank Haith, who recently left the Hurricanes to become Missouri's coach. With Amaker out of the mix, the Hurricanes are expected to focus on University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee coach Rob Jeter.

Harvard is expected to make an official announcement later this afternoon, reaffirming Amaker's commitment to a program which produced a 23-7 record and a share of the Ivy League title -- the program's first -- with Princeton this season.

Amaker visited with Miami officials here Monday.

But after spending a day pondering the possibility of moving back to the Atlantic Coast Conference, the former Duke player and assistant coach informed Miami that he was not interested.
