KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced on Wednesday five head men’s basketball coaches who have been appointed to its board of directors, including fifth-year South Carolina head coach Frank Martin.
Martin joins new appointees Bill Coen (Northeastern), Ed Cooley (Providence), Matt Painter (Purdue) and Gary Waters (Cleveland State) on the board.
“I’m honored that I have been asked to be on the NABC board of directors,” Martin said. “I am extremely excited to do everything I can to continue to help basketball help people around the world.”
The 2016-17 appointees fill one vacancy to replace 2015-16 NABC President Ron Hunter of Georgia State University and four vacancies created by coaches who are no longer actively coaching.
“We are very pleased that Bill Coen, Ed Cooley, Frank Martin, Matt Painter and Gary Waters have agreed to join our board of directors,” said NABC Executive Director Jim Haney. “They have all been active with committees and various NABC initiatives while bringing a broad perspective and additional diversity to our board.”
