KANSAS CITY, Mo. — South Carolina basketball coach Frank Martin is joining dozens of college basketball coaches in taking action on racism and diversity.

The NABC announced Martin will chair a new committee designed to address issues of race and discrimination and not only within college sports.

He joined several other coaches in a discussion Friday on issues that have been raised by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and social unrest that has roiled the country.

Martin formerly coached the men's basketball team at Kansas State University.
