The UT-Arlington Mavericks head coach Scott Cross has been fired on Monday night. His coaching staff also was left go, as well.

He was the school’s head coach for the past 12 seasons. The former Mavericks player guided the team to a 21-13 season this year.

In fact, he guided the team to 72 wins over the past three seasons. They also won the Sun Belt Conference regular season championship in 2016-17.

“We thank Coach Cross and his staff for their service to the University and for developing a men’s basketball program that operates with honor and Integrity,” athletic director Jim Baker said. “In order to align the program’s direction with the University’s objectives, I believe new leadership and energy surrounding the program is needed. We will begin a national search immediately.”

Cross was an assistant coach at the school for eight-years prior to his appointment as head coach. He also played for the Mavericks for three-years.

The Mavericks made it to the NCAA Tournament in 2008 under Cross. He is the school’s all-time leading scorer.

Cross also helped guide UT-Arlington, as they switched Conferences during his tenure, as well.
