CMU Athletics Director Russell Willms announced today that Scott Martin has been named the new head coach of the men’s basketball program.
Success has followed Martin through twenty-seven years of coaching at the elite high school level at Winnipeg’s Sisler High School where the recently retired teacher co-ordinated the Pre-Employment Program while teaching high school Business since 1991.
“These are exciting times for basketball at CMU,” stated Willms. “Scott is a leader whose mindset, drive and experience with the game is not just about coaching a team, but about building a program and engaging with players, recruits and the community. Of course our aim every season is to have our team win a NIAC championship and to develop our overall competitiveness in cross-conference Canadian competitions, but we intend to do this while growing and developing basketball in Manitoba and working with local high schools and club programs to see talented players stay in Manitoba and earn university degrees and college certifications at home. I look forward to seeing Scott’s impact as he begins his journey here.”
