Samford University Director of Athletics Martin Newton will begin a four-year appointment to the NCAA Division I Council and the Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee on July 1, 2019.  Nominated for the posts by the Southern Conference league office, Newton was confirmed by the NCAA and will represent the entire SoCon in both roles. The Division I Council is the division’s primary policy-making body and a high-level group responsible for the day-to-day decision-making for Division I. Athletics directors, athletics administrators, senior woman administrators, faculty athletics representatives and student-athletes serve on the council; every conference is represented within the group. “Initially, my goals will be to listen and learn. The NCAA has a lot of important issues to address related to student-athlete mental health and well-being, and I’m looking forward to being a part of the solution rather than just discussing the problems,” said Newton.  The Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee ensures that appropriate oversight of men’s basketball is maintained, and makes recommendations related to regular-season and postseason men’s basketball.  – Joey Mullins, samford – Read More
