True, and Tommy Amaker may be a better coach
My top replacements should Donovan go in order: Jay Wright (Nova) , Mark Few (Gonzaga), Archie Miller (Dayton) and Tommy Amaker (Harvard)
Archie Miller would be a slam dunk hire for Florida but one person I would like to see get consideration: Harvard's Tommy Amaker.
This would sound like a totally random hire. but Tommy Amaker would be a interesting candidate for UF.
Tommy Amaker, Johnny Dawkins, John Thompson III, Lorenzo Romar, Kevin Ollie all are watching NJ Playaz and PSA
I think ASU can potentially still make a good hire. Josh Pastner, Brad Underwood, Leon Rice, Tommy Amaker, Russ Turner all deserve a call
Back in 1986, I became a fan because of guys like Tommy Amaker, and Mark Alarie.
Tommy Amaker. Mike Krzyzewski consistently turns great players into being great coaches!
you got a believe that Coach K's successor will be Bobby Hurley or Tommy Amaker

John Thompson, Roy Williams, Tommy Amaker, Chris Collins and Wojo are front and "center" to see Ivan Rabb and Jessie Govan square off
Listening to those *** Kenny Smith, Clark Kellogg, Ernie Johnson and Super Chuck, Charles Barkley 'discuss' (as in macho-one-upsmanship, let's get 'em out and measure) WHICH University basketball program has been the BEST over time. Barkley says(paraphrase) 'UCLA? UCLA's champions were in black-and-white, over 40 years ago for all but one--KENTUCKY is the best over the past 25 years.' Kellogg and Smith both opt for others, Kellogg for UCLA (maybe 'cause he just wrote a book on John Wooden), and Smith for Tobacco Road North Carolina. Me? I'll take any school where Rick Pitino is coaching--he has EIGHTEEN former assistant coaches or players NOW coaching at the Major College Level, indicating his teaching ability, but if I have to pick a school, I've gotta go with Duke and Coach K--consistently high performance, recruiting, academics, with many former players now coaching including Tommy Amaker or broadcasting, Jay Bilas, etc.
Ben Howland, Gregg Marshall, Tommy Amaker come to mind right away.
Interesting to watch different coaching styles in the NCAA... Love the ones who are a blend of intensity and composure (especially the young ones). Tommy Amaker (Harvard) and Tony Bennett (Virginia) Be the face your team needs to see.

Tommy Amaker has taken a seat at the table with Gregg Marshall, Shaka Smart, + Steve Fisher. Built national program in non BCS league.
Coaches who really helped themselves yesterday- Archie Miller, Marvin Menzies, Steve Masiello, Kevin Ollie, Tommy Amaker, and Saul Phillips
Tomorrow we have some bad *** teams playing! Some big time powerful programs! Should be as fun as today! Then you have a couple games featuring Arizona & Wichita St. lmao. Congrats to former Duke assistant coach Tommy Amaker on getting past the second round for the second year in a row with Harvard. Hard picking New Mexico over another former Duke assistant coached team in Stanford (Johnny Dawkins). Next year watch for Northwestern and former Duke assistant coach Chris Collins!!
Tommy Amaker, Former player and Assistant...coached Harvard to the upset over Cincinnati, we out chea...
I have 4 out of 6 pick so far. *** Harvard and Dayton won! I should have went with my gut on Harvard since they are coached Tommy Amaker(former Duke Star)...smdh..
With Harvard's basketball team being 27-4, seeded 12 and defeating seeded Cincinnati today, you can bet that Boston College will come calling for former Duke great and Harvard coach, Tommy Amaker, to be their next coach. Before he arrived at Harvard about 5 years ago, Harvard had not had a winning basketball season in over 50 years!
Congrats to the Harvard Crimson and their coach, Former Duke Blue Devil player and coach Tommy Amaker on the win against Cinci!
Harvard defeats Cincinnati - Harvard looked good - Coached by a former Duke player Tommy Amaker but Cinn played horrible.
March Madness: Why doesn't Harvard coach Tommy Amaker (former Duke Guard, asst. Coach, Michigan) get any Legimate college coaching opportunities??? And why don't the Harvard players have (visible) tattoos??? (Don't answer that one).
Former Duke Blue Devil superstar Tommy Amaker (only 3 months older than me) coaches 12th seed Harvard over 5th seed Cincinnati.
Former Duke basketball player, Tommy Amaker with the win for Harvard!
I love how much the announcers are taking about the Harvard success. Former Duke player Tommy Amaker is the coach that is making it happen!
Duke fans better pay attention to Harvard because Tommy Amaker (former Duke Player) might be your next Head Coach (when Coach K retires)!
For the record, I've got Harvard in this matchup. Tommy Amaker, Harvard head coach, former Duke standout. Go Crimson!

I always root for Harvard bc they are coached by former Duke player Tommy Amaker
Gotta root for the former Duke players Tommy Amaker at Harvard and Johnny Dawkins at Stanford
Harvard will beat Cincy as well. Tommy Amaker is a former Duke player who's coaching that squad. He's actually getting big time recruits to come even though they don't give out athletic scholarships.

So, your man is basically saying both Tommy Amaker & Johnny Dawkins left Duke & took shaky jobs at Harvard & Stanford?
Tommy Amaker, Johnny Dawkins and Quinn Snyder were all once a "great hire" as well. But so was Mike Brey on the other hand.
Congrats to B.Hurley and Chris Collins. May they reach the same level of success as Johnny Dawkins at Stanford and Tommy Amaker at Michigan.

- Waiting for John Beilein to say this is the worst Michigan team since Tommy Amaker was there.
great point..would Tommy Amaker or Gregg Marshall (Wichita State) be interested?
Suffering through Tommy Amaker makes me appreciate this team even more. Get some!
Tommy Amaker re Stemberg's letter to Drew Faust: "I’ve heard of it, but I didn’t get a chance to read it."
Nice win. Tommy Amaker rocked the turtle neck.
Harvard v Dartmouth in overtime on NBC Sports. Go Tommy Amaker.
What!? A Tommy Amaker team came out flat, at home, against an inferior opponent and is in danger of losing a huge game? I won't believe it.
neither of those is worse than Tommy Amaker's coaching in this game.
Watching tommy amaker Harvard team take on Dartmouth, the big green is winning 32-20 in the 2nd half on nbcsn
Which is more awful 90s: Tommy Amaker's Men's Wearhouse attire or Dartmouth's recruiting commercials?
Dartmouth 12-4, 14:59 1st. Big start for Big Green. Tommy Amaker yet to uncross his arms, so I guess he's not worried.
Duke better play some tough perimeter D or Billy King & Tommy Amaker could get out there & show them.
Bruce Pearl, Gregg Marshall or Tommy Amaker. I think we can get Pearl on the cheap if the NCAA waives his show cause.
Where was all these michigan fans when tommy amaker was the coach.
Somewhere Tommy Amaker is smiling. “Michigan couldn't be doing any more standing around right now”
If/when Coach K decides to retire, my top 5 replacements would be: Brad Stevens, Tommy Amaker, Johnny Dawkins, Collins, Wojo
Here's a clip from today's interview with Harvard's Tommy Amaker from the Show on
Harvard over Cal in Berkeley. Wes Saunders was a man among boys. Amazing the job Tommy Amaker has done with this group.
College Bsketball is GREAT! Reason No. 67: Sartorial Splendor! I know football is outside (well, most of the time) but some coaches look like sports gear Salesmen and others look like they just got off a long bus ride. In College Hoops, you get Jay Wright, Rick Pitino, Trent Johnson, Ron Hunter. John Thompson III and the legendary Lafayette Stribling, among others who always look great on the court. Not everything works (Tommy Amaker or coaches who have to wear school colors in ties) but a good suit always looks better when screaming at the officials or the players!
In serious news, Tommy Amaker of Harvard, Steve Donahue of BC and Steve Pikiell of Stony Brook are all voting in the USA Today coaches poll.

Harvard's return to NCAA tourney coincides with change Tommy Amaker still won't admit: lower academic standards.
