Tim Cluess To Remain At Iona

EW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – In nine seasons as Iona College men's basketball head coach, Tim Cluess has led the program to unprecedented success and will remain as leader to continue to build on the Maroon & Gold's accomplishments. "I would like to start by thanking everyone for all their support. I am truly blessed to have so many people say so many nice things," said Cluess. "I am however taking my name out of consideration for the St. John's job." "When I was unexpectedly contacted last week, it opened up a flood of emotions. For those of you who have ever lost a loved one you know that there are special places, trinkets, and memories that keep them alive in your heart and soul. St. John's was one of those key places where my love for family has been a part of my life since my earliest memories. In my heart the thought of reestablishing the connection to my brothers Kevin and Greg through the possible opportunity to coach at St. John's and the chance to help bring back their rich tradition in the process made it hard to walk away from. There comes a point where the reality of the situation becomes clearer and moving forward is what is needed. I love my players at Iona and being a coach here and I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love at a place I love. I look forward to continuing to grow the Iona program to higher levels," Cluess added. "We are extremely proud of Tim Cluess and how he represents our program," said Director of Athletics Matthew Glovaski. "He has elevated Iona men's basketball and put us into the national spotlight on an annual basis and we are thankful for all of his hard work and dedication. We look forward to continued success with Tim Cluess as the leader of our basketball program."
