The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced today the 2019 NABC All-District coaches for NCAA Division I, selected by their peers.

Houston Cougars Head Coach Kelvin Sampson was named the NABC District 25 Coach of the Year. Today's honor is the fourth District Coach of the Year of his career. He previously received District Coach of the Year honors in 1992 and 1991 (both from Washington State) and in 2018 with Houston.

In 2018-19, Sampson has led the Cougars to a 31-3 record, the program's first outright regular-season conference championship since 1984, Top-10 rankings in both national polls and a No. 3 seed in this week's NCAA Tournament.

With the Houston's win at SMU in mid-January, Sampson became only the 52nd coach in NCAA history to reach 600 victories in his career. That win also gave him 100 in his Houston career and made him the fastest coach in UH history to reach that total.
