Congrats to coach Gene Cross who has agreed to take the head job at Toledo.
This guy will be missed. He made the most noticable impact as a new assistant coach that I have ever seen. The players seemed to relate to him and he was the go-to guy on the bench from day one. At every substitution, Cross knelt down by the player being taken out and broke down his performance. In addition, Cross was a dedicated recruiter who could always been seen with high school players after home games.
Best of luck to Coach Cross as he enters the head coaching realm. He should be a good one. I will certainly miss seeing him on the bench and talking to him from time to time. He's one of the nicest and hardest working guys in the business and a true up-and-comer.
