Former Terrapin Len Elmore to become CEO of iHoops


On Monday, former Maryland basketball player Len Elmore will take over as CEO of iHoops, according to multiple reports including this one from the Associated Press and this one from the Indianapolis Star. The NBA and the NCAA initiated iHoops in June 2009 as a means to make basketball opportunities more prevalent for America's youth.

Elmore, a college basketball analyst for CBS and ESPN, previously served on the organization's board of directors. He replaces Pac-10 Chief Operating Officer Kevin Weiberg, who stepped down from his iHoops post in March.

"This is layered on top of the television work and in many ways it will be integrated into it," Elmore, 58, told the Associated Press. "It's still about communicating to the stakeholders, and it's about visibility. We want to be the go-to resource for youth basketball."

After graduating from Maryland in 1974 as the men's basketball program's all-time leading rebounder (1,053), Elmore played eight seasons in the NBA and two in the ABA. He earned a law degree from Harvard in 1987 and currently serves on the University of Maryland Foundation board of directors.

Congratulations to Len. I had forgotten he received his law degree from Harvard. Lefty must have been thrilled having two major talents in Elmore and McMillan also excel academically.
