Calipari named to the NABC Board of Directors


It looks like John Calipari will have one more title to add to his resume before heading down to the Peach Jam. The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced this morning that Cal has been elected to the Board of Directors, along with Cy Alexander (North Carolina A&T) and Rick Cooper (West Texas A&M).

The NABC was founded by legendary Kansas coach Forrest “Phog” Allen in 1927 and is located in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s comprised of nearly 5,000 college coaches from across the nation, who swear to be “Guardians of the Game” and promote the positive aspects of college basketball and the impact it can have on kids today. Other coaches who are on the Board of Directors include Bill Self, Bo Ryan, Mark Gottfried, and Jim Boeheim.

Go Cal.

    what does this mean for Kentucky, if anything? Do they make any decisions that affect College backetball or only its coaches?

    looks like the “members” are not just college coaches, but even high school coaches, assistants, part-time and retirees (basically requires $50 registration) … cal is 1 of 25 on this year’s board of directors

    after reading about what they do and stand for, any chance this is the beginning of the nabc as the new ncaa as much as cal talks about getting rid of the ncaa if they don’t stop being imbeciles

    Time for Cal to ask for his wins back from the always fair and balanced ‘UNCAA’.
