The purpose of this study was to compare the differences in perceptions of evaluation criteria between athletic directors and head basketball coaches at National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I and III institutions in the western region of the United States. The objective of this study was to answer the question, is there a difference in perceptions of evaluation criteria by athletic directors and Division I and III basketball coaches? The researcher modified a 39 item questionnaire developed by Overton (1997) into a 21 item survey. The survey was sent to athletic directors and head men's and women's basketball coaches at a total of 114 universities and colleges in the western region: (a) fifty-four from Division I, and (b) sixty from Division III. Responses from the returned surveys were entered into a SPSS program (version 14.0) and analyzed utilizing a MANOVA for evaluation. Comparisons between athletic directors and coaches were conducted.
