STORRS, Conn. --- UConn assistant basketball coach Dwayne Killings has been invited to join a group of selected assistant coaches from across the country to participate in the 2017 NCAA Champion Forum for Basketball, to be held at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis.
The three-day forum, scheduled for May 8-10 and sponsored by NCAA Leadership Development, includes numerous seminars, geared toward preparation for the transition to becoming a head coach.
“It’s always good to be able to exchange ideas with people from different programs, coming at problems from different perspectives,” Killings said. “Hopefully, you come back with some information that will help your own program.”
The coaches are scheduled to hear from the NCAA vice president of enforcement, athletic directors, first-year head coaches and financial consultants as seminar leaders.
Killings is one of nine assistant coaches picked to be part of the event, along with assistants representing, Virginia Commonwealth, Iowa, Georgia Tech, Southern California, Purdue, Tennessee, Butler, and Colorado.
