INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero has been selected chairman of the Division I men's basketball committee for 2009-10.
His term begins Sept. 1, 2009. Guerrero will replace current chairman Mike Slive, commissioner of the Southeastern Conference.
Guerrero is vice president of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and chairs the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Academic Enhancement Group.
He also serves on the executive board of the Division I Athletic Directors Association, and serves on the College Basketball Partnership, a committee formed by NCAA president Myles Brand.
``I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on the committee and, as chair, will endeavor to listen, lead and embrace this wonderful opportunity,'' he said in a statement.
Guerrero has been athletic director at UCLA since 2002. In that time, the Bruins have won 17 national championships in 11 different sports. The men's basketball team has made three consecutive Final Four appearances.
Guerrero graduated from UCLA in 1974. He previously was athletic director at Cal State Dominguez Hills and at the University of California, Irvine.
