In 2016 the basketball team got in trouble with the NCAA (a staffer doing players' homework?). In early 2018 HC Reggie Theus and AD Dr. Martin got in a fight, and the university president dismissed them both. He was looking for a new job at the same time UMKC was looking for a new AD (if I understand everything correctly). He sounds to me like he really knows what he is doing as an AD at a mid-major. Already it seems he has brought energy and vision.

Last year in the midst of budget cuts UMKC did a study on athletics which considered going down to d2 or even d3. I think the hire of Dr. Martin shows that is not going to happen. I think it shows commitment to d1. Dr. Martin didn't travel from California to be AD of a d2 school. UMKC is not going to play in the same conference as their next door neighbors, Rockhurst Univ.

Dr. Martin at least had the backbone to try breathing life into CSUN athletics and Theus himself gave Martin credit for it. While the splashy hire of Theus didn't work out, it did set the stage for CSUN to hire Mark Gottfried, their second attempt at bringing excitement to basketball.

Sometimes a fresh start is needed and it looks like UMKC and Dr. Martin were the right match.
