MONROE, La. - ULM men's basketball coach Keith Richard announced Monday the addition of Ryan Cross to the Warhawk coaching staff. The hire is pending final approval by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors.

Cross joins the Warhawk staff after one season as an assistant coach at Bossier Parish Community College. Prior to Bossier, Cross was the head coach at Caldwell Parish High School, where he guided the Spartans to a 109-57 overall record and four straight state playoff appearances.

"Ryan Cross is going to be a real asset to our program," Richard said. "He's a strong recruiter and coach, and I am extremely happy about him joining our staff."

Cross served as an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech from 2003-06 and previously had head coaching stints at Chipola Junior College (1999-03) and Barton County Community College (1998-99).

He played four years of basketball at the University of Buffalo (1991-95), where he earned his bachelor's degree in sociology in 1995. Cross eventually earned his master's degree in higher education administration from Fort Hays State in 2000.

Cross and his wife, Karen, have three daughters, Taylor, Kelsy and Amber
