Harvard University men’s basketball coach Tommy Amaker has been elected to the board of directors of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Beginning his ninth season at Harvard, Amaker has guided the Crimson to six consecutive 20-win seasons, five straight Ivy League titles and four consecutive berths in the NCAA championship tournament. Amaker’s Harvard teams have a 78-34 record in the Ivy League and an overall mark of 161-79.

Four of Amaker’s Crimson student-athletes have earned All-America honors while Keith Wright and Wesley Saunders have been named Ivy League player of the year.

A four-year starter at point guard for Duke, Amaker helped his team to the 1986 NCAA championship game and was named the nation’s top defensive player as a senior.

He was a member of Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils staff as an assistant and associate head coach as Duke won two NCAA titles and appeared in the Final Four five times. Amaker was the head coach at Seton Hall for four seasons and at Michigan for six seasons before moving on to Harvard in 2007. His overall record as a head coach is 337-218 in 18 seasons.

Amaker also serves on the board of directors of the NABC Foundation.
