Scott Cross emerging at New Mexico

After leading UT Arlington to its winningest season in program history (27-9) in 2016-17, and the school’s top four seasons in his 11-year tenure at UTA, coach Scott Cross’ name is now more front-of-mind than ever as the NCAA coaching carousel continues to turn.

As of Wednesday, according to the Naples (Fla.) Daily News, no one had yet interviewed for the open coaching job at New Mexico, but Cross’ name was mentioned alongside Florida Gulf Coast coach Joe Dooley’s name as possible candidates.

“Scott [Cross] is one of those young coaches who’s going to be in the mix when names are mentioned when jobs come available,” UTA athletics spokesman Richard Kilwien said Thursday. “We’re not aware of any specific conversations that he’s had with anyone about any open jobs.”
