Division I Men's Basketball Ethics Coalition

The role of the Division I Men's Basketball Ethics Coalition is to promote ethical conduct among NCAA Division I men's basketball coaches through education, leadership and mentoring.

The Ethics Coalition is charged with :

  • Identifying ethical issues facing Division I men's basketball coaches and providing general guidance to coaches on possible ways to deal with those issues through educational and reference materials.
  • Providing leadership by “walking the walk and talking the talk” with regards to ethical conduct. The Coalition will be vocal in addressing ethical issues and affirmatively seeking to build a coalition of coaches committed to ethical behavior.
  • Acting as quasi-mentors and resources to other coaches on ethical issues and concerns. Coalition members are available to consult with other coaches on ways to resolve ethical problems.
