|Cornell's Donahue Reportedly Leaving for Boston College
|BOSTON (AP) -- A Boston College official says Cornell coach Steve Donahue will take over as the Eagles' new basketball coach.
The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because Donahue's hiring has not yet been announced.
Donahue led Cornell to a 29-5 record this season and a third consecutive Ivy League title. The Big Red reached the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament.
Donahue will take over for Al Skinner, who was fired after 13 years in which he became the winningest coach in BC history.
