Boston College basketball coach Steve Donahue is in Florida on a recruiting mission, but apparently he is ready to fill the opening on his staff created when associate head coach Joe Jones left the Eagles last month to take over as the head coach at Boston University.
According to BC and Ivy League sources, Donahue is going to dip into the Ivy League pool once again and hire Hobart coach Izzi Metz. Metz spent five years at Cornell as Donahue's assistant before taking over the head job at Hobart in 2006.
Although nothing is official, Donahue will probably shuffle the priorities on his staff and move Nat Graham into an associate head coach's role and then slide Metz into a position, perhaps as Director of Basketball Operations.
