Creighton’s Greg McDermott Advances To Second Round in Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge

Creighton head coach Greg McDermott is one of 24 Division I men’s basketball coaches that has advanced in voting for the seventh annual Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge, as announced by Infiniti and partners the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the NCAA and ESPN. The Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge is a four-round online bracket tournament in which coaches represent charities and compete for fan votes.

McDermott is representing and competing on behalf Abide, an amazing charity that is an inner city nonprofit with a mission to serve Omaha one neighborhood at a time.

Infiniti, an official NCAA corporate partner, will donate a total of $349,000 throughout the competition. While the winning coach will receive a total of $100,000 to benefit his charity of choice, Infiniti has guaranteed a donation of at least $1,000 to the charities of each coach involved in the program. By advancing to the second round, McDermott has guaranteed at least $7,500 for Abide.

The donation to the respective charities increases the farther a coach advances in the competition. The charities of coaches involved could receive donations of $1,000, $7,500, $10,000, $15,000 or the grand prize amount of $100,000.

Beginning now, fans can vote at www.espn.com/infiniti to decide the winner throughout the four-round, 10-week competition.

The second round runs from Jan. 23-Feb. 12, after which the field will be cut to 16 coaches for the third round (Feb. 13-26). Only four coaches will advance to the fourth and final round (Feb. 27-March 12) with the top vote-getting coach and charity announced on March 12.
