Davey Named to Prestigious NABC Board of Directors

April 18, 2001

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) has named Santa Clara University men's basketball coach Dick Davey to its board of directors. Davey will serve under the leadership of 2001-02 NABC President and University of Kansas men's basketball coach Roy Williams to protect the best interests of the game, coaches and student-athletes.

"Dick has shown tremendous dedication to basketball and his student-athletes throughout his career in this sport," said Williams. "As Guardians of the Game, the NABC and its members see coaches as mentors who exhibit four core values, leadership, advocacy, service and education. Dick has exemplified these values and we are proud to name him to our board of directors."

Davey will enter his 10th season as the head coach of the Bronco men's basketball program in 2001-2002 with a 160-102 overall record. He has posted three 20-win seasons, including a 20-12 mark in 2000-2001. He has compiled an 80-29 record at home in his nine seasons for a .734 winning percentage and is the West Coast Conference's winningest active coach. Previous to his appointment as head coach, Davey served as an assistant on the Bronco staff for 15 seasons.

"The NABC has a lot of issues on its plate, ranging from the NCAA's recommendation to eliminate exempt tournaments/certified events to the amateurism deregulation legislation," said Jim Haney, NABC executive director. "With the knowlege of the game and the genuine concern for student-athletes that Dick possesses, the board will benefit immediately from having him serve as a director to this association."
