“We’re excited about the addition of Kris Baumann,” Floyd said. “He is an excellent coach and comes highly recommended by one of my former assistants, Kermit Davis, who worked with him at Idaho. His junior college team was ranked number one in the nation the majority of last season and finished 33-2. They have been to three consecutive national tournaments. We think he’ll be a great fit. He excelled at recruiting high-major caliber players to Trinity Valley Community College, and we’re confident that he’ll be able to do the same here.”
UTEP Basketball Coach Tim Floyd announced that Kris Baumann has been hired as an assistant coach with the Miners. Baumann comes to El Paso following four years as the head coach at Trinity Valley Community College, where he forged a 110-26 record.
