KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Fresh off of advancing to his third Elite Eight as a college head coach and leading UA to the second-best single-season win total in program history, University of Arizona head men's basketball coach Sean Miller has been elected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) board of directors.

The Beaver Falls, Pa., native will join the NABC board of directors alongside Minnesota State head coach Matt Margenthaler.

A three-time NABC district coach of the year (District 10 in 2008, District 20 in both 2011 and 2014), Miller has compiled a 129-48 (.729) record in five seasons at Arizona and a 249-95 (.724) mark in 10 seasons as a head coach. He has guided the Wildcats to three Sweet 16s and a pair of Elite Eights (2011, 2014), and is one of five coaches nationally to lead teams to at least five Sweet 16 berths since 2008.

Miller directed Arizona to one of the finest seasons in the storied history of the program in 2013-14, going 33-5 and winning the Pac-12 regular-season championship before culminating the season in Elite Eight. Ranked No. 1 in the nation for a program-record eight-consecutive weeks during the season, UA also set program standards for best start (21-0) and longest winning streak (21 games) during the 2013-14 campaign.

For his efforts, Miller added Pac-12 Coach of the Year honors to the Pac-10 Coach of the Year trophy he earned in 2011. He currently ranks fifth on Arizona's career coaching wins list, and needs eight victories to pass Bruce Larson (136) for fourth place.

Under Miller's guidance, Derrick Williams earned 2010 Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and 2011 Pac-10 Player of the Year honors before being selected second overall in 2011 NBA Draft. Former UA stars Nick Johnson and Aaron Gordon were named Pac-12 Player and Freshman of the Year, respectively, in 2014.

Gordon, Johnson and Williams all earned All-America honors during their tenures in Tucson, with Johnson narrowly missing out on consensus honors following a stellar 2013-14 season.

Miller's first four years in Tucson have produced a total of three NBA Draft picks, including first-rounders Williams and Solomon Hill, who was selected 23rd overall by the Indiana Pacers in 2013. UA has a chance to add to that total by two later this month with Gordon and Johnson among the pool of candidates from which teams will select in Brooklyn.

Under Miller's direction, the UA program has also experienced success off the court, as evidenced by its most recent multi-year APR score of 984, which reflects the first four years of Miller's tenure. The Wildcats produced single-year APR scores of 1,000 in both 2010-11 and 2011-12.

Miller will serve as an assistant coach for the 2014 USA Basketball Men's U18 National Team this summer when it trains for and competes in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Colorado Springs, Colo. He was a court coach at the 2011 USA Basketball Men's World University Games Team training camp and won a gold medal while playing for Team USA at the 1991 World University Games.

The NABC has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men's basketball coaches. All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today's student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education.
