Gophers Athletics Director Mark Coyle will serve as a member of the Division I men’s basketball committee for the 2020-21 season. The committee’s primary task is to produce the March Madness bracket.

Coyle will represent the Big Ten Conference and will serve under his former boss Mitch Barnhart, the current committee chairman who is Kentucky’s athletics director.

“As the Division I basketball championships have continued growing, the workload and time commitment of basketball committee members in managing the event, as well as selecting, seeding and bracketing the field, has evolved,which led to the appropriate expansion to 12 members,” Dan Gavitt, the NCAA’s senior vice president of basketball said in a statement. “We are excited to have Mark (and four others) join the committee as they bring a wealth of experience and leadership to the group.”
