According to the Boston Herald, Cornell’s Steve Donahue will be announced as Boston College’s new head coach today.

Donahue, who has spent the past 10 seasons at the helm of the Red, led Cornell to three straight NCAA tournament appearances –– the most recent of which took the team all the way to the Sweet 16 to cap off a record-breaking 29-5 campaign.

Donahue, who told the Ithaca Journal earlier this season that he would only consider leaving Cornell for a “flat-out home run” offer, will take over for Al Skinner, who was fired after 13 seasons on March 30 –– the same day Donahue was awarded the Clair Bee Coach of the Year award.
