When Dr. Brandon Martin became the new UMKC athletic director, he laid out his 100-day vision for the department in terms of attendance and fundraising to help the program leap into the future. “The 100-day vision starts with looking, listening and learning,” said Martin. “It’s doing a full assessment of our staff and coaches and making sure everything we do is in line with Chancellor Agrawal’s mission for the university.” Martin hopes to get all 16 UMKC sports into the top-100 nationally, with men’s basketball breaking into the top 25 and becoming the best mid-major program. He looks to Wichita State basketball for ideas. Part of the plan is boosting attendance, and that started with moving games back to Swinney. There are incentives for students to attend games—the “pouch card” can earn students incentives ranging from an Adidas polo to a road trip with one of the teams. Martin is also focused on boosting alumni involvement with the department. -Robert Zimmerman, info.umkc.edu. Read More.
