Missouri’s Frank Haith is one of 48 NCAA basketball coaches taking part in the Infiniti Coaches Charity Challenge, which includes a $100,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of the Columbia Area if Haith wins.
Fans vote online to determine one winner out of the 48 coaches, similar to the Missourian’s online bracket determining the greatest player in Missouri men’s basketball history.
For the next eight weeks, fans can vote online at www.ESPN.com/Infiniti for up to four coaches per day.
The first six weeks feature all 48 coaches in four brackets. After six weeks, the winners of each bracket move on to the next round in week seven, and the final two coaches face off in week eight. The winner will be announced March 9.
The total contribution for the challenge, which is a partnership between the NCAA, the National Association of Basketball Coaches and ESPN, will be more than $300,000. All 48 coaches' charities are guaranteed at least $5,000 from Infiniti.
