BALTIMORE, Md. – Morgan State head men’s basketball coach Todd Bozeman has been named as a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Division I Congress representing the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).
Founded in 1972, by legendary Kansas basketball coach Phog Allen, the NABC works to further the best interests of the game of basketball as well as the players and coaches who participate in the sport.
This is the first time in his collegiate coaching career that Bozeman has served on the NABC Congress.
As a congressman, Bozeman will serve as a liaison between the coaches in the MEAC and the NABC. Among some of his roles, Bozeman will participate in monthly conference calls and attend the annual meeting during the convention. In addition, Congress representative coaches serve to both relay information from the NABC Board of Directors to fellow conference coaches as well as help survey the membership and garner support for the organization.
“It’s an honor to serve as a member of the NABC Congress and represent the MEAC as we effectively work with the NCAA and its committees to continue to protect and enhance our great game,” Bozeman said.
The NABC Congress was formed in 1992 to allow the NABC to work more effectively with the NCAA and its committees. The NABC Congress consists of one NABC coach serving as a conference representative for each of the divisions of NCAA Basketball.
Bozeman enters his 12th year as Morgan State’s head men’s basketball coach. Since his arrival to Cold Spring Lane, the Bears have participated in six of the last 11 MEAC Tournament championships, captured back-to-back-MEAC Titles, and made appearances in the NIT and two NCAA Tournaments. Bozeman is also the school’s all-time winningest coach with a career overall mark of 168-175.
Bozeman’s squad will open the 2017-18 season at Binghamton University on Friday, November 10. The Bears’ first home game will be on Thursday, November 16 against Division II Lincoln University.
