Harvard announced Tuesday that Tommy Amaker will receive an honorary degree from the university.

Amaker will be awarded a Doctor of Sports for his excellence in recruiting, the university announced.

“We’ve created a Doctor of Sports just for Tommy Amaker because of the outstanding success he’s brought to our men’s basketball program,” Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust said in a statement. “He just wins, baby.”

“The best thing about this honor is we’ve won the right way,” Amaker said. “We don’t fudge things around here. That makes this honor all the more satisfying.”
