IU coach Mike Woodson joins advisory board of company combatting internet addictions

“I don’t fool with social media. … That’s just not my makeup,” IU basketball head coach Mike Woodson said back in February.

“I wish our players would follow that same note in what I’m saying.  Leave it alone and concentrate on getting an education and playing basketball. That’s what it’s all about.”

Woodson is putting his reputation where is mouth is.

HOUR25.AI, an algorithm-based digital platform that says it is combating a trillion-dollar problem to reduce Internet addictions, increase resiliency and improve well-being at home and at work, announced that Woodson has joined as an Executive Athletic Advisory Board member and investor.

The Executive Athletic Advisory Board and roster of investors consists primarily of professional athletes, sports business leaders and influencers including Chairman and Phoenix Suns analyst Eddie Johnson, sports business leader Eric Rubin, and Phoenix Suns VP of Player Relations Mark West.

I am excited to be on a winning team that is making such a meaningful impact on students, corporations, and individuals.”

We look forward to working with Mike moving forward.”

“Coach Woodson is the ideal addition to Hour25.AI’s Executive Athletic Advisory Board,” added Eric Rubin, a member of the Board and Hour25.AI’s Director, Business Development. “Coach has achieved success at both the college and professional level and clearly understands the importance of focus and resilience.
