Boyle Named To NABC Board Of Directors
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – University of Colorado coach Tad Boyle, Wheaton (Ill.) coach Mike Schauer and Benedictine (Kan.) coach Ryan Moody have been added as members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Board of Directors, it was announced on Thursday. The coaches' appointments begin immediately after being formally approved on Tuesday during the Board's monthly meeting.
The NABC Board of Directors provides strategic oversight of the NABC and advocates on behalf of coaches on national legislative and policy issues. The Board includes representation from all three NCAA divisions, the NAIA, two-year colleges and high schools.
"The game of basketball and the coaching profession are at a critical moment in history, with numerous challenges and opportunities impacting every level of the sport," said NABC Executive Director Craig Robinson. "Tad, Mike and Ryan are well-respected leaders whose experience and unique perspectives will serve the NABC Board of Directors and their fellow coaches well."
All three coaches have achieved on-court success while also holding prominent roles on various national committees.
Boyle, who recently completed a term as chair of the NCAA Men's Basketball Rules Committee, will enter his 13th year as CU's head coach in 2022-23, ranking second in both wins (254) and winning percentage (.621) in school history. He owns nine of Colorado's 13 all-time seasons of 20-plus wins and has led the Buffaloes to five NCAA Tournaments during that span.
Boyle is currently serving as the head coach of the USA Basketball U18 Men's Team at the FIBA Americas Championship in Tijuana, Mexico.
Schauer, who is also currently Wheaton's acting athletic director, will begin his 14th year leading the Thunder program in 2022-23 and 23rd overall as a head coach. He was a member of the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Committee from 2018-22, serving as chair during the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons.
Moody was named the head coach at Benedictine in 2011 after previously holding assistant coach positions at North Dakota and serving as a high school head coach. He is a past president of the NAIA Men's Basketball Executive Committee.
The new Board additions follow the completion of terms for Northeastern coach Bill Coen, former Trinity (Texas) coach Pat Cunningham and former Westmont (Calif.) coach John Moore.
