Iona head coach Tim Cluess has withdrawn his name from consideration for the head coaching vacancy at St. John's.
Cluess released the following statement on Twitter:
"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. I am however taking my name out of consideration for the St. John's job. When I was unexpectedly contacted by them last week, it opened up a flood of emotions."
Cluess has been the head coach at Iona for nine seasons and has reached the NCAA Tournament six times.
