KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Seven influential men’s basketball coaches will participate in a special webinar event on Friday, June 5 at 3:00 p.m. (ET) titled “Using Your Platform as a Coach During this Critical Time.” The forum, which is part of the ongoing NABC Championship Webinar series, will feature dialogue on how coaches can address racial injustice and other important societal issues.
Scheduled to appear on the webinar are Tulane coach Ron Hunter, Kentucky coach John Calipari, South Carolina coach Frank Martin, Houston coach Kelvin Sampson, Penn State coach Pat Chambers, Stevenson coach Gary Stewart and NABC Board of Directors member Ernie Kent.
