BOSTON (AP) -- Steve Donahue has been hired as Boston College's basketball coach after leading Cornell to three straight Ivy League titles and the round of 16 in this NCAA tournament.
The move was announced by Boston College on Tuesday.
Donahue led the Big Red to a 29-5 record this season -- the most wins in Ivy history. They beat favored Temple and Wisconsin in the NCAA tournament to be the first Ivy team to reach the round of 16 in more than 30 years.
Donahue replaces Al Skinner, who was fired after 13 years and was the winningest coach in BC history.
