Missouri men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin was appointed to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Board of Directors, the school announced Tuesday. His appointment is effective immediately.
A few of the organization's goals are to "promote the ideals of integrity, sportsmanship and teamwork; encourage basketball coaches to serve as community outreach agents; work with the legislative arm of the NCAA on issues that affect basketball and intercollegiate athletics," according to its website.
"The NABC's sole focus has been dedicated to developing leaders and positively impacting the lives of student-athletes, so I'm excited and honored to be on the Board of Directors," Martin said in a release. "I look forward to the opportunity to serve and help continually grow our game alongside well-respected colleagues from around the nation."
Martin joins John Calpari (Kentucky) and Frank Martin (South Carolina) as representatives from the Southeastern Conference. Columbia College's Bob Burchard is also on the NABC Board of Directors.
Martin was also selected to the NCAA Men's Basketball Oversight Committee in May.
