The Rich & Sandy Glas Family Men's Basketball Scholarship Endowment

Rich Glas was the head coach for University of North Dakota men's basketball from 1988 to 2005. He is the all-time winningest coach in the history of UND  men's basketball after amassing a 335-194 record in his tenure. He posted eight 20-win seasons at North Dakota and guided us to eight NCAA Division II tournament appearances. He was a college head coach for 37 years, compiling a 608-413 record.

After leaving UND, Coach Glas joined Concordia College as  their head coach and retired in 2016.

During his 18 seasons at the University of North Dakota, Glas coached six North Central Conference Most Valuable Players, 10 All-Americans, 27 All-NCC selections, two NCC Newcomers of the Year, one NCC Freshman of the Year and 10 Academic All-NCC Selections.

Because of Coach Glas' huge impact at the University of North Dakota and lifetime of commitment to basketball, a group of former players, coaches, and fans  have created an endowment in honor of Rich, his wife Sandy, daughter Randi, and son Jeff.

The scholarship or scholarships will support tuition and fees for UND men's basketball student-athletes. To sustain the Department of Athletics history of excellence and position UND as a premier educational provider, it must be able to attract the best and brightest studentathletes. As the cost of higher education continues to rise at significant rates, UND Athletics is committed to supporting highachieving student-athletes.
