    Biography

    Danny "Dan" Mara is a retired college basketball coach who is in his sixteenth year as Commissioner of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference and former Chair of the NCAA Division II Membership Committee. In April 2020, Mara added the role of Commissioner of the Collegiate Sprint Football League. He spent 16 years directing a highly successful basketball camp at Mitchell College where he is considered a special alumni. As head coach at Mitchell, he coached ten Kodak All-Americans including future Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) player Rita Williams. Williams went on to University of Connecticut to lead them to the 1998 Big East Championship and was named tournament Most Valuable Player (MVP). She was the 12th pick in the 1998 WNBA Draft and was chosen as the first all-star game representative in Indiana Fever history. As coach of the New London, Connecticut junior college team, Mara was the guardian of the longest regular-season winning streak in college basketball. In his coaching career at Mitchell College, Mara still lived on campus, in Matteson Hall, a men's dorm. He roomed with Pep, a 16-year-old Samoyed and collie mix, who until the 1994 basketball season sat beside him at home games. To players he is something of a father figure to potential athletes, because each year Mara looks after stray players who, for various reasons, have not found a place at a four-year college, and he makes them part of his family.
