Field narrows for BC basketball job

After Harvard coach Tommy Amaker removed himself from consideration last Saturday, the field of candidates for Boston College’s men’s basketball coaching job was narrowed further Tuesday when Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins and St. Bonaventure head coach Mark Schmidt were taken out of the running, according to sources familiar with the search.

Hopkins, 44, a native of Laguna Hills, Calif., and a former Syracuse player who has served the last 19 seasons at his alma mater as an assistant/coach-in-waiting to Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim, interviewed in Boston over the weekend but returned home without an offer, according to the sources.
