News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Thursday...
  • As reported by numerous sources in the media, including WEEI of Boston, former Cornell head coach, Steve Donahue, the current head coach at Boston College has lost his top assistant coach with Joe Jones accepting the head coaching position at Boston University. Jones spent several years as head coach at Columbia in the Ivy League. The move has several implications for Cornell. First, Cornell hosts Boston University during the '11-'12 season. Second, current Cornell top assistant coach, Marlon Sears was on Joe Jones' Columbia staff during the 2009-2010 season. See other stories covering the hire at Boston College Athletics, BU Today, the Boston Herald, ESPN and CBS.
Continuing our look back at March 2010, Cornell was the topic of discussion of the Ivy League's student newspapers as the Big Red advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.
