CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – William V. Campbell Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond has been appointed as a member of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee, the NCAA has announced. Jarmond will begin serving on the committee on July 1, 2019, and continue through June 30, 2023.
The Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee ensures that appropriate oversight of men’s basketball is maintained, will enhance the development and public perception of the sport and make recommendations related to regular-season and postseason men’s basketball. The committee will prioritize enhancement of the student-athlete educational experience (academically and athletically), and in doing so, promote student-athletes’ personal growth and leadership development.
“It is a tremendous honor to serve on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee,” said Jarmond. “Being able to play the sport at the highest level and now assist in the process of enhancing the student-athlete experience in a sport close to my heart is truly special.”
The Men’s Basketball Oversight Committee supervises qualifications and/or selection procedures for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. The committee will review recommendations from the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and process other issues related to the administration of the championship. The committee will assume many of the duties of the former NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Issues Committee and will provide direction to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Rules Committee regarding playing rules. The committee will be comprised of representatives from each divisional subgroup.
Jarmond joined Boston College in June 2017 as the William V. Campbell Director of Athletics and has made an immediate impact at The Heights. Jarmond’s leadership has helped change the climate and culture in and around Boston College Athletics as his positive energy and passion has helped drive the Eagles’ momentum on and off the field.
A native of Fayetteville, N.C, Jarmond graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he was a two-time captain of the basketball team, earned All-CAA Academic honors, and helped the Seahawks gain their first NCAA Tournament appearance.
